This autumn, BERLONI will stage the first London exhibition of Kamal Boullata's work since 1978.


The acclaimed Jerusalem born artist (now based in Berlin) known for his geometric abstract paintings, deals with questions of identity, exile, light and transparencies. This new series will occupy the Fitzrovia space with around 20 new paintings on both canvas, and paper.

"Woven by translucent panes, by the vibrations of redoubling forms and sliding shapes that filter in through the heart of a sharply defined perimeter, this work exudes a spatial dimension of light; its chords discretely swell to animate variations of a rare harmony. Between monochromatic spaces and the clarity of the stabilizing geometry, and between transparencies and the shimmering that crystallizes every now and then, a subtle dialectic settles in; one that is not the reflection of a coincidence but the product of a vigilant discipline. A man of culture and master of his hand and style, Kamal Boullata, whose work crossed frontiers a long time ago invites us to discover his itinerary. An itinerary marked with an insinuating spiritual asceticism that reverberates a tempered musicality marked with an uninterrupted fugue."
