"Entre Les Temps," the latest exhibition at the recently opened Galerie Cheriff Tabet, is a retrospective of the career of Canadian artist Antoine Claes.Presenting 25 paintings from four series, spanning 20 years of work, Claes' artistic affinity for the aesthetics of industry and construction sites suit the renovated warehouse hosting the Karantina gallery.While Claes has experimented with various forms and techniques throughout his career, he said, his fascination with abandoned factories and scaffold-fronted buildings has remained constant.The gallery, which opened last November, is the retirement dream job of owner Cheriff Tabet.Having collected art for many years, he decided to open a gallery to exhibit the work of local and international artists.Tabet commissioned two of the paintings in "Entre Les Temps," both depicting typical Lebanese vistas.The Montreal-based Claes is inspired by busy cities and tries to travel to other urban centers, taking photos.
