Green Art Gallery is presenting Kamrooz Aram’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, debuting new paintings and sculptural works. The artist, one of Abraaj Prize 2014 winners, will also be in conversation with curator and critic Murtaza Vali on Monday, 14 November 2016 at 6PM in Nadi Al Quoz.
Aram’s paintings are made with a typically Modernist approach to painting: the artist works the entire canvas at once, building up and scraping down layers of paint, in search of a fleeting resolution.
Aram will also debut a series of new sculptures exploring the significance of exhibition design in shaping our understanding of the antiquities we view in museums. These sculptural installations utilize paintings as backdrops, further examining the notion of the decorative in painting.
