On Thursday November 10, Ayyam Gallery Beirut will proudly present “Through The Looking Glass II” an exhibition highlighting the most recent work of Syrian artist Mouteea Murad. Marking the painter’s first solo exhibition in Beirut, this upcoming event will showcase a new take on the complex geometric abstractions for which he has become known over the past few years.

In 2009, Murad began successively labeling his canvases with the word “Trial,” an indication of a continuous path of experimentation. Deeply engaged with the multifarious tradition of Islamic art, he approaches his work with a profound sense of spirituality and an acute understanding of its aesthetic values. Working from this foundation, he proceeds with contemporary experiments, identifying then adding to the modern breakthroughs that defined the formation of abstract art movements throughout the twentieth century. Joining these seemingly disparate schools of art in a single composition, Murad elucidates how the origins of international abstraction lie within the essential principles of Islamic art.

Resulting in new forms and techniques altogether, Murad reconfigures arabesques with constructivist visions and minimalist divisions, juxtaposing order and chaos as illuminated shapes and bold lines define multidimensional space.

Utilizing cutting-edge artistic techniques, he explores the core facet of this tradition by creating compositions that suggest a sublime presence in the world around us so that wonder, beauty and complexity are depicted as stemming from the same
divine source.

Mouteea Murad will be present on the opening day and during the first week of the exhibition.

  • The opening will take place on the 10th Nov at 7pm
  • Mouteea Murad will be present on the opening day and during the first week of the exhibition.
