Sparks Gallery’s programming in 2022 explores the theme and concept of “Perspective” from exhibited and represented artists at the gallery. Poised to open during the transitional period between summer and fall, Khalid Alkaaby’s solo show “The Path of Light”, fittingly investigates another liminality – that of the shifting emotions and half-recollected memories and images we all feel but can seldom articulate. 

Alkaaby prefaces his exhibition with this phrase: “Finding oneself in the darkness is unsettling. Feelings of fear, loneliness and uncertainty. However, even the smallest glimmer of light in the darkness can bring comfort and hope.”

Represented through his characteristic abstract works featuring textural brushwork, muted tones, and dreamlike compositions of pure color, Alkaaby explores the spectrum of emotion, from negative feelings of isolation to positive ones of joy and hope. Creating his abstractions through an unconscious, almost automatic sense reminiscent of the Surrealists of the 1910’s and 20’s, Alkaaby gives form to these sensitivities, with a result many people resonate deeply with when viewing for the first time. 

Alkaaby’s works will be on view at Sparks Gallery from August 13th to October 2nd, 2022 with an opening reception on Saturday, August 13, 2022 from 6-9pm. RSVP at https://sparksgallery.com/rsvp?eid=32956
