Assel El-Rayes paintings at Primecorp

December 16, 2015 - February 17, 2016

Assel El-RayesAssel El-Rayes is showing three larger format acrylic paintings from December 15, 2015 to February 16, 2016

The Primecorp exhibit space is located at 275 Bank Street, ‘physically’ at the north east corner of Bank St. and Somerset St., just east of Gabriel’s Pizza Restaurant.   This exhibit space consists of three, bay style, display windows.  Each window measures 120” in width, 87” in height and 14” in depth and offers a streetscape viewing access to the public at a very high traffic zone.

Artist Statement

This body of work is selected out of my musical paintings series, which are originally six paintings. I was exploring movement and steadiness by allowing myself to express my feelings freely on the canvas, putting in mind that they will look totally different at the end, colours wise and shapes wise.

I used oil colours, the palette knife and the brushes; while listening to music I was painting; responding to the rhythm and expressing my feelings. Each canvas had a different melody, and the colours palette is different reflecting the mood of the melody.
