Geometry adepts will tell you that a point isn't a thing but a place, represented by a dot.It is with this approach that Lebanese artist Rami Chahine (aka "Le Mauve") has produced a large series of mixed-media works, now on show at Karantina's Art Lounge.The point, Chahine told The Daily Star, "is a trace, an imprint of the past, opened to a [certain] evolution".Wandering into this show, members of the public may think they are looking at simple blotches of color on various media, but Chahine's point, as it were, is to transcend such notions. Chahine didn't have any particular idea in mind when creating this work, he explained.Chahine has used the point to commence an artistic statement.
