Samia Halaby: Five Decades of Painting and Innovation offers an unprecedented look at one of the world’s leading abstract painters. Born in Jerusalem in 1936, Halaby now lives and works in New York. Spanning more than five decades of the Palestinian artist’s illustrious career, from her early student days in the 1960s to her most recent series in 2013, the book contains nearly 450 color reproductions, presenting her expansive oeuvre through paintings, prints, and drawings. From large canvases exploring the color planes of geometric and helix formations to abstract assemblages that pulse with movement, her practice is one of radical experimentation and creative urgency.
