"Transformation," Mark Hachem Gallery's latest exhibition, showcases Chaouki Chamoun's most recent works, exploring the aesthetic elements of different media.With its various textures and brightly colored figuration, this 20-piece series of mixed-media and acrylics is interesting to the eye. Chamoun began exhibiting after receiving his masters in fine arts from Syracuse University in 1975 .He went on to receive a doctorate in aesthetics and studio art from New York University. Most of the pieces in "Transformation" are made of architectural materials, scraped and spread across the canvas to create urban landscapes and structures.At the bottom of almost all the paintings is a line of small figures, facing the scene before them."Transformation LR," a gray piece with rows of brightly dressed figures behind wire, reflects Chamoun's criticism of today's concrete jungle.While Chamoun's next project is still in the experimental phase, he works in his studio daily, seeking new concepts and materials to play with.
