Krytzia Dabdoub creates enormous textural abstracts with earthy details. She successfully evokes the elements and integrates them into her work: sand, earth, leaves and debris can all be discovered in her paintings. Dabdoub, a new Peninsula resident, has found in Northern California a fresh source of inspiration, with its bright light, crisp colors and transparency of water and wind. Dabdoub is influenced by artists like Anselm Kiefer, Adrian Pujol, Beth Allison, Jackson Pollock but also by the great works of art from the past and the bright colors in pigments and in nature.sp colors and the transparency of water and wind. The duality of strength-frailty and abundance- scarcity motivates her to transmit that feeling and connect with the viewer.

Our pediatric cancer families will get to create beautiful art with Krytzia along with arts educator Rita María NOGUERA. We will meet at Project Look Studio inside the Palo Alto Art Center. Directed to children ages 5-18 years and their families and health care providers.
The theme of the workshop is called OUR ESENTIAL NESTS The artist will talk about memories that inspire her to paint her artwork and show some slides of her paintings.
- We will then talk about the children’s memories, then parents will share one childhood memory with them as well.
- We will give each one a little “gift”, a little can which will contain inside the most precious thing in their lives.
- They will then decorate it with the things that are meaningful to them to create a nest that surrounds their precious gift... with clay, leaves, flowers, hay, buttons, ribbons, paper, organic material, beads, etc.
- Lastly we will showcase their artwork before they take it home on a paper plate.
It promises to be a very special workshop (just in time for Mother's Day!)
