The eponymous publication is edited by Maymanah Farhat and traces Mouteea Murad's development in nonobjective art over the last ten years, from his early days of using a gestural painting style to his most recent experiments in geometric abstraction. In this richly illustrated book introduced by artist and scholar Samia Halaby, Farhat details the evolution of his painting style and the many influences that inform it, assessing his approach within the broader history of abstraction, while critic and curator Murtaza Vali looks at his latest works and the theoretical underpinnings of his aesthetic.
The monograph was launched alongside the artist's exhibition Thresholds, at Ayyam Gallery Dubai (11, Alserkal Avenue) in November 2016. Available for sale at our galleries in Dubai. For purchase information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call +971 4 3236242.
