Nasser Almulhim: Shadow Work

1 - 24 February 2022
  •  

    Almulhim approached painting as a mode of healing from mental trauma in his youth. Embarking upon a journey to heal the mind, Almulhim explored and drew from various schools of thought that span Eastern mysticism and spiritual practices - from Sufism to Buddhism -, as well as western philosophies and approaches to psychoanalysis particularly the Jungian approach.

    Shadow Work comprises a selection of 10 acrylic on canvas works in both large and small scale, divided into two sections, which place the artworks into dialogue with one another. Almulhim understands these works on canvas as the materialisation and negotiation of the thoughts and emotions that pass through his mind, particularly relating to personal struggles with depression. One group of works offer up a feeling of weightlessness and comprise pared-back, minimalist compositions while the other is charged and chaotic; an amalgamation of the fleeting sources of inspiration that the artist encounters in his daily life absorbed from local architecture, nature, light as well as intimate spaces in the home.

    Nasser Almulhim is a painter and sculptor based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of West Florida in Pensacola, Florida. 
     
    Utilising a highly saturated palette, absorbed from the Abstract Expressionism movement, Almulhim meditates upon the interaction between geometric and organic forms and their connection to the human psyche. His practice assumes a playful and intuitive approach to art-making, doubling as a therapeutic act that opens what the artist understands to be: “The gate of self-healing.” His work materialises his inner imagination, transposing it into two- and three-dimensional forms. The artist employs various methods to establish a spiritual healing process between inner energy and universal power. A principal theme within Nasser’s practice is the relationship between spirituality and mental processes, and the visual representation of this bond. He’s interested in the immediate impact of forms and colours and how their unification might establish rhythmic energies and speak of inner emotions.  Almulhim examines the relationship between colour and human behaviour patterns and unpacks the ways in which colour can stimulate energetic or psychological shifts. The dialogue between these elements unfolds throughout  Almulhim’s practice.
