“...a dream that could make a heart tremble… a dream of Palestine.”

Gazan artist Ruqaia Alulu

“The faces of the characters in Ruqaia’s paintings are often blurred or masked, or devoid of features. They perhaps represent the suffering of growing up in refugee camps. In the opening of her catalogue, she describes camps full of poverty, disease and hunger.

However, these struggles are intertwined with the passing down of customs, fables and traditions that feed the soul and perpetuate a dream. In Ruqaia’s words, “a dream that could make a heart tremble… a dream of Palestine.” James Walmsley
