Duo on Paper
“‘Duo on Paper’ looks like a visual fairy tale. Given the difference in age and experience between Abousleiman and Akahori (Tokyo-1976), there was a master-apprentice relationship in terms of technique and material control.
It has a creative competition, but one that is more familiar to us from jazz rather than painting: working together in a playful duel on a collaborative artwork. Abousleiman stimulated his young friend’s imagination and enhanced the atmosphere using his arsenal of visual techniques.”
