Description

The artistic style of Abderrahim Yamou was born at the end of the 1980s in the textural abstract movement using Moroccan earth as a medium, and was gradually consolidated over following decades. Although he experimented for a certain period with prehistoric subject matter and cave wall techniques, the artist understood that the earth used in his initial paintings was above all a potential locus for the emergence of life, for a promise of germination, both real and imaginary. He began to grow plants inside his sculptures. His paintings show disquieting vegetal images, followed by cosmic visions and figurations of the microcellular world. This volume, through over 200 works, represents the primary themes and issues addressed by Abderrahim Yamou, his skillful handling of chromatic values, scale, shadow, light, reflections, solid colors, nuances and transparencies that weave an imaginary floral world that may be related to the Saharan dream of the garden.
