EVERY ROSE HAS ITS THORN - June 8 - 21, 2016
Opening Reception: June 9th, 6-8pm
Arta Gallery is proud to host a solo exhibition by Iranian-Canadian artist, Khosrow Abtahi in our main Gallery space this summer! Approaching each canvas from an Expressionist sensibility, Abtahi's brush is guided by the power of thought, personal reflection and endless creativity.
"The concept of time fascinates me. Whether it's loved or hated, stretched or shortened, it can ultimately be the past, present or the future. It could be ignored, postponed, feared or embraced. Whatever the case, its impact on our lives through this journey is irreversible. Travelling is time, and thinking is the best and most liberating way for one to travel. The images on my canvases are deliberate thoughts, each with its own story, goal and ultimate destination; unhindered by time and limited only by the extent of my imagination"
- Khosrow Abtahi
