Transformation by Chaouki Chamoun

February 1, 2018 - February 22, 2018

Location: Mark Hachem Gallery - Beirut

Mark Hachem Gallery - Beirut is delighted to present “Transformation”, a solo exhibition by artist Chaouki Chamoun, featuring a selection of his most recent works. Upon a visit to Chamoun’s studio, Akel Awitt had the chance to study the truly magnificent new series after which he wrote: “I prefer not to stand long in front of Chamoun’s paintings so that I am not jealous, so that I do not burn and drown. I flee from it and into it so that it does not pull me into its ropes; those infernal ropes. It infuriates me that he is ahead of me, that he is intriguing and bold. That he takes me out of my own self, so that I become part of the painting, of its atmosphere and mixture.”
