ON PAPER at Cuadro Fine Arts, Dubai

“On Paper”,  illustrates the interplay between the creation of figurative works and the subtractive nature of abstraction. Cuadro presents the works of Dale Chihuly, Alex de Fluvia, Marcelo Guimarães Lima and Samer Tabaa. All of these artists excel at exploring the prominence of the line through gestural mark-making and action painting. Although exploring the same theme, their distinct ways of seeing become evident in their execution.
