Critical to Quraish

 ARTISSIMA Art Gallery presents the Iraqui artist Exibitiom Mr Quraish

In this series of works show open contrasts of our time: A World sólid0 and stable confronts a changing world, which tends to dematerialize.
The images foregrounds the sensory qualities of materials and show that attachment to the real often subordinated to the interest in geometric abstraction.
  Travel brings its hundreds of images, then select those places where distinctive elements that are missing from becoming recognizable. This absence immediately referred to other qualities of the image, framing discover strange architectures, while light highlights the role of the textures, the sensuality of the surfaces. The urban landscape becomes conducive to contemplation territory, but the sense of the image is not in what it represents or evokes but herself, her reason for being is linked to the own visual issues and the passage of time.
 Flow curves in the vacuum of some buildings, empty accentuated by the evanescent white and dark gray fan.
The drawing of the lines of the structure, acts as guide for the look, crawling towards an illusory vertex. The vanishing point is out of the composition, but the eye tends however to look. Perfection monofocal design perspective, exerts an attraction enhanced by the strength of the rough material. The overhead approach collage and overlapping elements generate monumental dimension.
 Forms are broken between deceptive reflections and glares. Suspended in a timeless space, as in a dream, the images show the memory of what they have been and what will be left guessing, while the present flees and eludes us. The sense of movement of the hypnotic landscape, leading up to the limits the visibility of the object, which tends to disappear.
 The analytical view of static structures, the loss of forms contrasts, things lose their eternal aspect in a universe that has been broken into a thousand pieces. "Nothing is certain except change itself," he says, and quotes Marx when he says, "all that is solid melts into air".
Made of paradoxes and confrontations, paintings Quraish foregrounds the stresses of today's world.

Opening: Tuesday, 5th April 2016, at 7:00 p.m.
Artissima Art Gallery, Dubai - United Arab Emirates

The artist's masterpieces will be presented for the very first time in Dubai to the general public of the United Arab Emirates, in the huge spaces of Artissima Art Gallery, the Gallery of Contemporary Art.

The exhibition is focused exclusively on large paintings (all works on display measuring 2 meters high and 3 meters wide) and presents a rigorous selection of the most recent works on the theme of industrial sheds, large canvases with dramatic impact and tense, stunning and mystical bright insights which irresistibly disorient and attract the viewer into the 'light'. They are works of great impact and strong emotional intensity.

Among the works presented there will also be the painting called "Shed", which was exhibited in 2012 in the exceptional solo exhibition that Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome dedicated to the artist, giving him the honor of being the youngest international artist, both of the present and past generation, to inaugurate a monographic exhibition at the prestigious venue (Mario Schifano 1990, Kandinsky 1991, Gilbert & George 1991, Botero 1991, Joseph Beuys 1992, Giorgio De Chirico 1992, Richard Long 1994, Joseph Albers 1994, Tiziano 1995, Hermann Nitsch 1996, Alberto Burri 1996, Maurice Utrillo 1996, Robert Capa 1996, Lucio Fontana 1998, David Lachapelle 1998, El Greco 1999, Enrico Baj 2001, Mark Rothko 2007, Bill Viola 2008, Giorgio De Chirico 2010, Mimmo Centonze 2012).

The exhibition reflects the efforts of the United Arab Emirates to spread art and culture, especially the Emirate of Dubai that continues to collect praise as an absolute leader in supporting events and artistic initiatives worldwide.

At the opening of the exhibition in Dubai, where the artist will be present, and for the whole duration of the show, the public of collectors, critics, museum curators, gallery owners, artists and art lovers from all over the world (the exhibition will be held in conjunction with the "World Art Dubai" International Art Fair) will be able to also learn about the main steps of the exceptional twenty-year career of the Master, that starts from the intense portraits made with exceptional sharpness and vigour, and the majestic but intimate figures portrayed in his studio, passing through the informal period to reach the extraordinary explosion of creativity of the great luminous spaces of industrial sheds, which appeared for the first time in the artist's works in 2008 and continued to involve the latest impressive sculptures, exciting plastic meditations on this same theme . 

In the last ten years the fame of Mimmo Centonze has grown exponentially: the first solo exhibition in Milan curated by the historian and art critic Vittorio Sgarbi in 2009, the "Fondazione Roma" Special Prize, assigned in 2010 by the President of the Fondazione Roma, Prof. Emmanuele F.M. Emanuele, the portrait of Mafia boss Toto Riina exposed in 2010 in Salemi Mafia Museum in Sicily inaugurated by the President of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano, the exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2011, the rigorous monographic exhibition that Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome dedicated to the artist’s work in 2012, the exhibition – which lasted for nine months - carried out between 2013 and 2014 in Matera (exhibition event which actively participated in the application of the artist's native city as European Capital of Culture 2019), until the exhibition in 2015 in Venice at Fondazione Cini in Luciano Benetton's "Imago Mundi: Map of the new art" global art project that includes artists representing the five continents, and at Expo Milan in the exhibition called "The Treasure of Italy", selected by the historian and art critic Vittorio Sgarbi among the best artists from the fourteenth century until today.

The historian and art critic Vittorio Sgarbi wrote about him: “Only a few artists of our time have, more than Mimmo Centonze, the sense of vastness of space”. The President of Fondazione Roma, Prof. Emmanuele F.M. Emanuele, said: “I’m a staunch admirer of Mimmo Centonze. I consider him one of the most brilliant artists of the new generation”. The President of the Italian Republic Giorgio Napolitano said: "The artist’s portrait of Totò Riina is remarkable". The photographer Oliviero Toscani wrote: "The art of Mimmo Centonze is oozing with sin, decadence, lust, intolerance, blasphemous religion, sex and beauty. Is there anything better for modern art? ".
