“Jamboree” by Taher JAOUI at the “Musk and Amber” gallery
Exhibition curator: Rim Ben Boubaker
Exhibition from November 12th to December 3rd 2021
“Distorted figures, very bright colors, disguises reminiscent of carnival. “Jamboree”, the new exhibition by artist Taher Jaoui surprises the public with an approach that joins a personal style under the influence of primitive African art, cartoons, as well as the philosophy and attitude of expressionism abstract; he paints universes populated by strange creatures that seem to come out of a “daydream” “I love the way the Expressionists at the time went beyond the fine arts and the way it was taught. They allowed themselves to go further, ”explains the artist.
“Jamboree” is an original exhibition that takes us to the rhythm of freshness, poetry, superb aesthetics, in the intimate world of Taher Jaoui. A world from which thoughts spring, in an immediacy popular with the public.
I see his pictorial work as a representation of the world as a whole, in different forms and at different scales, both microscopic and celestial.
The world moves in a haphazard and disorderly fashion, which gives it its beauty and eloquence in his eyes. His way of shaping and moving is irregular and unpredictable, therefore evocative. The autonomy and independence of his work allow him to express himself independently of himself.
