The artist Samia Al Zaro who paints and Sculptures and has a big part in improving  the artistic education curriculum, expressed how beautiful these artworks were by saying: “the frame protects the artwork, and if it grabs attention, it can make that artwork look more beautiful or not, because it’s a familiar way people started to deal with, and there is  art that need that kind of frame, and these frames are perfect in the way they were designed and the handiwork”.

And she adds: “for me, I don’t frame my work, to leave space to the observer to get into and out of the painting whenever he wants, and I think the artwork is an expression of what the artist feels inside, but there might be a frame that sends this feeling but it never gets to the observer”.

The artist Omar Hamdan says: “the Italians are well-known with their touch of creativity in decoration, and their amazing patterns, and it’s a new idea to see the artwork and the beauty of framing, and the thing that grabbed my attention the smoothness and the simplicity and the size of the artwork, as they could be an artwork without anything inside them”.

Meanwhile the artist Rama AL-Muzz expressed her the way she admired the artworks by saying: “there is some concentrated modernity in these frames , as they combine photography, digital and the visual communication  , and it has the manufactured materials, it shows in the photographical picture and the heritage in the artwork, it’s a combination between  visual communication  and manufactured materials”.

The artist Jalal Erikat said that the ideas that this exhibition held were many, and it combines the modern with the classic, and noted that the frames were creatively simple, especially the ones made of gold and silver that were made by the electric typecast.
