BADER QABAZARD

Surrender

1/6

One day out of boredom, I began experimenting in Photoshop with photos I’ve taken throughout the years. Over time, I developed my own method of manipulating these images. It’s a process of digital collage done by adding textures, shapes, and colors to form portraits that emulate my emotions on any given day. I open my heart to these characters and we go on a collective journey together through moods and phases. The process is both a fight and a release for me, and for a moment in time a reality I find peace in.

بالصدفة في أحد األيام، وبدافع مقاومة الملل، بدأت في تجربة
مجموعة من الصور التي التقطتها وعالجتها في برنامج )الفوتو
.شوب(. كانت هذه بداية لتطوير طريقة خاصة بي للتعامل مع الصور
في الحقيقة هي عملية تكوين كوالج بتقنية رقمية تتم عن طريق
إضافة بعض العناصر والتكوينات واأللوان لبورتريهات لشخصيات
تفاعلت معها مشاعري في يوم من األيام. لهذه الشخصيات أفتح
.قلبي لنرحل معا في رحلة جماعية من خالل حاالت مزاجية مختلفة
بالنسبة لي هذه عملية صراع وتحرر في الوقت نفسة. لحظة من
.الزمن أنشد ,اجد فيها السالم النفسي في الحياة الواقعية
