Rashid Al Khalifa - Hybrids

One Fine Art, January 20, 2018

Ayyam Gallery Dubai (11 Alserkal Avenue) is pleased to invite you to the opening reception of Hybrids, a solo exhibition by Rashid Al Khalifa, on Saturday, 20 January at 3.00 pm.

Hybrids will present a selection of wall-mounted installations from six different series from 2010 to 2017.

Over the past four decades, Rashid Al Khalifa has continuously explored the nature of experientiality of art whilst asserting the importance of its context over art for art's sake. Rashid has experimented with a multitude of painting styles, including Realism, Impressionism, and Individualism. Over the past decade, he has turned to Abstraction and Colour Field. In his recent works, Rashid maintains a focus on the aesthetics of what post-modernists identify as re- contextualisation of an art genre. Investigating varying articulations of seriality within his oeuvre, as well as geometry, surface, and color, the artist creates simple yet deeply resonant works. Rashid's installations are 'hybrids' of painting and sculpture, where he increasingly experiments with three-dimensionality using aluminum, stainless steel, and other mediums. Read more

The opening reception will coincide with 8 Galleries Preview, a joint initiative by Alserkal Avenue galleries to welcome visitors on a weekend and to create a family-friendly cultural experience.
