Lot Essay

Syrian artist Moutteea Murad's vivid and spiritual canvases are geometric mosaics in which squares, triangles and circles intersect, overlap and collapse upon each other. Influenced by his belief that contemporary abstraction is rooted in the logic and science of Islamic thought, Murad's most recent series Trials seek to extract the beautiful and sacred by reconfiguring abstraction through reference to the multivarious traditions of Islamic art. Arabesques with Constructivist visions and Minimalist divisions juxtapose order and chaos, while illuminated shapes and bold lines define multi-dimensional space. Striving for completeness and harmony, his compositions suggest an underlying divine presence.
