"After dedicating close to twenty years to my architecture career, I have finally decided to showcase a selected body of work of my first and life-long passion – Art. For me, art is as process-based as my architecture but it does not make it any less of an emotional endeavor. My work is all about an internal process that involves the canvas, the body and my emotions. It is simply out of the need to create and embrace a side of myself that I have kept hidden until now that I’m exhibiting this selection of works. This exhibition showcases my work of the past two years. It starts out with my very first Gemini Series 4x4 feet diptych paintings, which then evolved into to my large format 5x6 footers that are heavily influenced by a mix of childhood experiences in a war-torn country and tumultuous experiences in New York over the last few years. The exhibition finally leads to my latest sculptural pieces of folded canvas on canvas that came as a result of years of experimentation with the materiality of form and content." - Michel Abboud
