A Series of Meditations: Khalilah Sabree
December 1, 2014 – January 16, 2015
The Silva Gallery is aglow with the quietly powerful work of Khalilah Sabree. Our current exhibition, A Series of Meditations, is about spiritual transformation. Ten years in development, Sabree’s current body of work contains multiple series of large-scale, mixed-media paintings. In this show we are delighted to present two of her series: the Hajj Series and the Above and Below Series. The Hajj Series reflects inspiration received while the artist was on Hajj in 2004. The Above and Below Series seeks to illustrate the relationship between the temporary life we live on earth and our transition through the physical earth. Much of Sabree’s work is inspired by verses of the Holy Quran. In essence, her faith informs her art, but as a result her art gives visual expression and voice to her faith.
All are welcome to attend a reception with the artist to be held on Friday, December 5
from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m.
