MUHAMMAD ABDUS-SABUR

Illumination: An Exhibition of Fine Art Photography
November 3 – November 24, 2015
Reception: Thursday, November 5, 2015 6-8 PM

There is a dream-like quality to the work of Muhammad Abdus-Sabur that draws viewers in, regardless of the level of abstraction or naturalistic representation employed by the artist. Abdus-Sabur frequently focuses on locations of transition and liminality, where boundaries are connected and traversed: objects such as windows, doors, and bridges play a large role in his works. This perhaps reflects Abdus-Sabur's own diverse Native American and Moorish background, his former career as an architect, or his frequent travels around the world to study indigenous spiritual ceremonies.

Spirituality is a theme that runs not just through Abdus-Sabur's life, but through his art as well. For him, the act of painting is akin to meditation. He describes it as suspending the illusion of the every day, what some might call reality, so that inspiration can be let in. According to Abdus-Sabur, this allows the language of form to speak through his paintbrush, lens, or pencil. “One must struggle to see and find joy through love,” he says. This perfectly summarizes the feel of his work, which seems infused with a sort of warmth and intimacy.
