The Nuba of Kau

“[…] Greta Naufal stands out among the artists from her generation whose art is decorative or ornamental. And she reminds through this of the strong beginnings of Yvette Achkar and Nadia Saikali who changed the approach to art and remained strong in the face of resistance. Greta Naufal doesn’t bring any foreign detail to the human scene which defines her theme, but she deliberately removes all the elements of the natural landscape. Her focus remains on the essential traits of the human face as a window to emotional unrest or instinctive invasion. […] She delves into the depth of her consciousness to uproot these musical compositions which reflect both joy and sorrow just like day and night.”
