El-Nachar 2005

In tribute to El-Nacharís Masterpiece, The Eighth Epic, entitled "The Integrality of time & place", we Zamalek Art Gallery used a new, experimental way to present the work to the public. Enlarged sections of the original work function as a dictionary, or a decoder-so to speak- of its vocabulary: a key to unraveling its complex visual, conceptual and artistic composition. Twenty eight sections were selected from the expressionistic, figurative drawings arrayed across the boxlike structures that form the paintingís angular surface, none of them larger than 7x10 centimeters. These small sections have been photographed, then enlarged (in some cases to more than 1mx1.5m in size), printed on vinyl, and finally mounted on MDF board.
These vibrant images solve many of these spiritual riddles of Al-Nasharís work that are not immediately apparent on a first viewing. Thus, the viewer is able to see the roots of the artist's artistic vision, to enter into the artistís world and understand what lies behind the surface detail.
