”Hearts, bugs and other creatures”
The collection “hearts, bugs and other creatures” is inspired not only from the work of Louise Bourgeois, but also from her style, the confessional art. Similarly to Louise, Dina is looking in her inner self for symbols that can sum up her memories and personal experiences and finally settled on the heart, the hand and the leaf.
The items are made of traditional materials: silk, ceramic and metal, all presented in a contemporary context. These materials reflect bright and intense colors, reminiscent of the warm morning light of Beirut.
Dina’s collection is distinguished by its genuine naturalness, one that brings to mind the joyful and magical moments of our childhood.
