Inside Insight
Featuring Lina Faroussi, Irit Epstein, Elham Hazfi

Exhibition: Sept. 12 – Sept. 23
Opening reception: Thursday, Sept. 13, 6:30–10 pm
Gallery 1313, Toronto

Three women artists from diverse backgrounds who uprooted themselves from their respective homes share their experiences of transition and change. The artists portray different perspectives of being in a new environment: the gateway to hidden worlds; a trail of images representing a nomadic journey; and how internal channels are developed by the challenges of change.

The artwork does not tell a story, but encourages imagination and involvement, providing the viewer with an intangible, emotional experience. Since transition and change are a universal occurrence, the work invites the viewer to step away from their familiar environment and see the human experience with a new point of view.


Lina Faroussi was born and raised in Syria, then moved to Egypt to continue her bachelor degree in commerce. Lina’s passion for art began at an early age. She studied visual art during her years in Egypt, Dubai, and in Toronto, where she has lived since 2008. She continued to work on her dream of becoming a visual artist, exhibiting in many different group and solo shows throughout the Middle East, Europe, Canada, and the United States. During the past few years, she has received multiple art awards in Canada and abroad.
