Introducing: Buthina Abu Milhem

"Buthina Abu Milhem's dresses elicit multiple questions, introducing a clash between artistic and aesthetic values, between culture and tradition. Milhem cuts and sews her embroidered swatches, weaving her words into the dresses. Her expression of freedom of thought, emphasizes her uniqueness, and confronts the viewer with a work which is rich and nuanced, yet jolting and bewildering. The action in an on the dresses challenges the things we do. putting them against our realizations and challenges. It is a rebellion that stems from anger, frustration, and criticism of society and of individual conduct within society. As a Muslim Arab-Palestinian female artist, a citizen of Israel, she invites us into her external world through her rich, intricate inner world."

- Farid Abu Shakra, in catalog: The Needle Vanquishes the Sewer (Umm el-Fahem Art Gallery, 2005).
