Halaby's bold abstract paintings helped shape the course of contemporary Arab art. Endless fields of bright, almost neon dots fill her canvases, full of references to the abstract expressionists and post-impressionism. There's a strong political dimension to the work as well, with Halaby a fierce political campaigner. She's an important figure in middle eastern art, and more than worth catching.
