poster for Nabil Nahas "Cedrus Libani: Roots & Memory"

This event has ended.

Nahas will present five large-scale works that reflect a personal vision of his homeland and showcase a deep connection to his Lebanese roots. It was while visiting Lebanon twelve years ago that Nahas was first struck by the sheer beauty of the country’s landscapes, but felt that he could not justify his impulse to paint them. Then in 2007, he finally found the visual thread he was seeking between the iconic cedars of Lebanon and the fractal paintings he had been producing. The resulting works on display at the FIAF Gallery are painted from memory and play with the viewer’s notion of space; each piece is a study in perspective as Nahas explores his subject with a microscopic gaze.
