Dubai, January 30, 2016 – To mark the collective and global celebration of International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day celebrated on 8 March and 21 March, the Pullman Dubai Jumeirah Lakes Towers is delighted to showcase the new series of contemporary portrait and figurative paintings of beautiful and symbolic women by Susan Brooker.
With this years International Women’s Day theme of Pledge For Parity in mind, Susan has created especially for this event a series of paintings called ‘More Than A Woman’ which depicts inspirational women proudly displaying their cultural heritage and indeed demonstrating that they are more than a woman.
Susan is a Dubai based artist who is known for her brightly coloured and vibrant portrait paintings of women. Susan’s previous collections have always focused just on the face, but for this series the paintings are more figurative. Susan stated: ‘I am honoured and thrilled to be chosen by the Pullman Dubai Jumeirah Lakes Towers Hotel to represent and support such a wonderful campaign as that of the International Women’s Day and most importantly the Mother’s day. I hope that my paintings of such impressive female role models help to connect women from all over the world’.
Commenting on the Art Exhibition, Fadeel Wehbe, the General Manager of Pullman Dubai Jumeirah Lakes Towers said: ‘We are pleased to have Susan exhibiting her work with us as well as help to support and promote International Women’s Day. This is Susan’s second solo exhibition in Dubai and we are pleased to help and nurture such a promising up-and-coming artist’.
