Formations of “Maheerah”
The exhibition discourse begins with the introduction of the artist’s muse “Maheerah”, the underlining protagonist of Abdulrahim’s paintings.
The Apple and The Crow
An interesting duality between desire and guilt using the symbols of the apple for desire and the crow for prejudice.
Conversations and Waiting
A reflection on the artist’s struggle with his muse and a reiteration of the dualities
found within the struggle between the feminine and the masculine.
Creation and Destruction
A perspective on the duality of light and dark aimed at an understanding of darkness and nothingness to arrive at the place of light instead of finding the light away from the darkness.
An extended conversation with his muse, that represents her within his paintings and alludes to his intention, expression, and connection. She becomes the language that he uses across his paintings through changing formations.
