Spotlights illuminate the myriad oil and acrylic canvasses and ink-on-paper works while metallic sculptures cast prominent shadows on the wall and the polished tiles of Artspace Hamra nowadays.The strength of the exhibition resides in the diversity of the individual works on show.Each artist portrays a different perspective of utopia, humanity, nature and the prevailing political landscape.The stenciled strips of Arabic calligraphy, arched doorways, Persian designs on blocklike buildings, floral prints, and coal-colored portrait outlines in Kubba's work also complement the forms in Kyrillos' "Final Move".In trying to decipher something concrete from the hard brush strokes, it becomes apparent that the spirit of contemporary art confronts the urban decay as well as the fertility of nature.
