A Moroccan Modernist Retrospective - Abdesslam Sakini

Event

Abdesslam Sakini (born 1st Jan 1943) is a Moroccan Artist who was part of the Casablanca Art School during the period it revolutionised modern art in post-colonial Morocco. Sakini’s influences are evident in his paintings.

Earlier works reference his teachers and colleagues at the Casablanca School of Art such as Mohamed Melehi and Mohammed Chabâa. Bold use of geometric shapes and abstract patterns create striking compositions on the canvas. Hard edged, architectural forms sit within symmetrical layouts. More recent works take on a less rigid aesthetic inspired by many years in the Australian landscape. These paintings feature flora and fauna recreated with an abstract colour palette that evokes the extremes of the Australian environment.

Please join in the aerie gallery for the Exhibition Launch: 2pm Saturday 25 May – everyone welcome.
