ABRA Gallery is very pleased to present Hassam Abrishami “Unique Impression,” marking his first solo show at the gallery. Abrishami creates colorful layered canvases and sculptures for this exhibition, he has created a series of paintings featuring images with impressions relating to music, love, fruit and body form. The series is organized around a sequence of images deriving from the painting “Solo Rhythm.” These canvases and sculptures are interlocked in a continuum, effectively creating a classical frieze commemorating the love and the freedom to express Abrishami’s inner feelings.
Abrishami employs a sophisticated technique that reflects his multiple subject references and includes materials such as, acrylic, oil, ink and bronze. His apparently simple layering of elements and color palate coalesce the varied subjects and media to enhance his use of figurative images.
Abrishami was born in Shiraz, Iran in 1951 and currently lives and works in California, USA. His museum exhibitions include: Museum of Contemporary Arts, Tehran, Iran; San Bernardino Museum of Art; Museum of Arts and Science of Daytona Beach, Florida; Museum of Contemporary of Art in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Hessam has also shown his work in Australia, Russia, Italy, Israel, Hong Kong, England, and Japan. His recent publications include: “Expressions of Love” and “ln Absence of Color.”
