XVA Gallery presents Mukesh Shah’s first solo exhibition at XVA Gallery, opening 11th June from 6pm. Mukesh Shah was born in Aden, educated at Eton and Cambridge and currently lives in Dubai. The works on display span a period from 2011 to 2016.
‘My practise is an innate response to change and the narratives that impact me. Abstraction that is contemplative and detached but also human seems more relevant than ever; I am drawn to the space where figuration dissolves into abstraction. My compositions often have a geometric structure with space, repetition and chance as keynotes. The process of making is important in itself and the use of different materials adds a tactile textural physicality to the work.’
