Mohamed Abla, Conviviality The Nile and The Trees

In his new exhibition, Artist Mohamed Abla takes us to a very private and intimate world where trees, water plants and wild flowers are the main elements. In an unprompted fashion, combining spontaneity and a controlled technique of oil colors, Abla weaves all these elements together, and with a masters brush reveals opacity of colors at some instances, and transparency of colors, at others

What does the artist want to say? After we experienced with him the world of the Nile and sailing boats, does he want us to share his world? Does he want to take us to place where joy and optimism prevail, to experience these shining imaginations of nature? Can Art, truly resist frustration by offering optimism?

This is what the artist believes in, and wants to convey to us. He surrenders to the notion of enjoying his surroundings on a small island amidst the Nile where his atelier stands. He reduces the world to a smaller placea small circle which to him will become the whole world. He challenges himself to make of this circle a larger space large enough for all his dreams. He immerses himself in this world and gives rein to his imagination to recall disappearing figures, appearing reluctantly in the corners of the paintings human figureshuman figures metamorphosing into birds or animalsThey seem, somehow, to entertain a silent conversation with world of trees they tell a story without featuresIn facts, the artist gives us the freedom to construct this story, however offers us the settings scenea full of lines and colorful blotches Its only when we enter and discover the artists world, that we start believing in it.

Mohamed Abla perplexes us with his ability to move between different worlds in each of his exhibitions from the world of crowds to the world of the Nile and the Nile boats He even shocks us with his world on pollution, remnants of the city and plastic excavations of the Future.

Viewers, who follow Ablas journey, observe his strong belief of Art to elicit the shock and generate glimmers of optimism. In order, to convey his ideas, the artist subjugates his numerous tools to conform to them. In fact, Abla practices photography, graphic, video and sculpture and proficiently manipulates, each of these, to closely reflect the ideas he wants us to share with him.
