DUBAI---Ayyam Gallery Dubai announces the opening reception of Thresholds, the solo show of Sharjah-based painter Mouteea Murad, on Sunday, 13 November at 7.00 pm. Organised by critic and curator Murtaza Vali, Thresholds highlights the artist’s latest body of work as he further experiments with the use of mathematics in geometric abstraction, an approach to non-objective art that he developed over the course of a decade. Mouteea Murad’s work sees a unification of spirituality and formalism, continuously drawing influence from the geometric forms and motifs of Islamic art. [link]
