Jamali. Through March 2009. Lawrence Savage Galleries welcomes the internationally renowned artist Jamali who has long attracted a select and international circle of collectors, drawn by his mystical style and charismatic persona.
Jamali paints out of doors, applying paint in a meditative dance, like the Sufi mystic's swirling prayer to God. He builds up his intense and complex surfaces over time, allowing the natural elements to interact with the paint and canvas. It often feels as if time and nature, not the artist, had created these deeply etched and layered surfaces. Jamali's method brings to new fruition what Donald Kuspit calls "the unconscious mystical meaning of modernist surface."
The Galleries continue to present Shie Moreno's artwork of individual expression and the display of noted designer Andrew Muggleton's 2009 furniture collection.
