In Japanese, there is a peculiar word, shinrin-yoku, that literally means "forest bath". It's what you do when you take a long walk in the woods, feel the sun's rays breaking through the trees and unconsciously inhale the essential oils from the tree bark.Taking a walk in the woods clears your head. These acrylic-on-canvas works depict groups of trees, with Ali-Ahmad's trademark texture, broad strokes and strong, earthy colors.From these are hung large sheets, painted in bright colors, once again reflecting a tree motif, enhancing the structural textures of the first part of the exhibition."De Pli en Pli" is on display through Sept. 30 at the Karagulla Building, Mina al-Hosn, open daily 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4-7 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday 5-7 p.m.
