Please join us Thursday October 4, from 7-9 p.m. as we celebrate the opening of Kareem Abbas' exhibit, Attraction. Everyone is welcome. The exhibit will be on display from October 1-30, 2018.
Kareem is attracted to all things that surround him such as colour, structure, shape, motion and horizon-all have a way of attracting themselves to each other. One of the challenging subject he chose are "Horses" because of the beauty of the animal. From the movement of the paint brush and the colour harmony, the shape of horses caught the artist's attention. According to Kareem, horse's muscles provide the right light and shadow to appeal to the viewer's senses. He focused on the colour treatment and its transformations to provide the true image behind the horses’ muscles.
His exhibit will leave the audience to ask: why do things we view attract us and what is the value of attraction?
