"Out of the Middle" : group exhibition in London on Nov. 20, 2008

"Out of the Middle"

Coleman Road is pleased to present Out of the Middle, a group exhibition featuring work by Souhail Al Zaatari, Abdallah Ko and Jon Nash.

The exhibition brings together the works of three very different artists, examining the overlapping of diverse personal perspectives. Functioning much like ideas of an ‘Orient’ the ‘other’ exists as an unknown, between collective identities.

"Most of Abdallah Ko’s paintings are on square canvases, an original format that was inspired by the Chinese writing system and calligraphy. Through various medias and techniques such as print, collage, charcoal, pigment, spray or finger painting, the artist usually works on a form, more or less alive, shifted from its original environment and as if frozen, placed to float inside the frame like a Chinese ideogram."

"The quartet of Charbel Haber, Tony Elieh (both hailing from punk band Scrambled Eggs), Fady Tabbal (from Tunefork Recording Studios), and Abdallah Ko (the loose cannon in this wild bunch), creates an intriguing, foggy tapestry of sounds, spreading over six tracks, and hovering between ambient electronica, folksy rock, and outlandish noise."
