Charlie Lewis Marffy: No Man’s Land

Charlie Lewis Marffy (B.1989, England) is a painter, writer, and researcher from Devon who lives and works in London, UK. He attended Exeter School of Art and Plymouth University after which he graduated from the Royal College of Art. Charlie has held residencies in Holland (2015), Cuba (2015) and Singapore (Most notably at the Institute of Contemporary Arts). Upon the completion of his degree, he joined Fabien Fryns Fine Art in the summer of 2022. He is interested in a pictorial space that is true to the experience of living, breathing and failing. A ludic sensibility that points to something psychological and unresolved. 

3. Installation view at Fabien Fryns Fine Art, Alserkal Avenue. 


The Third Line
Anuar Khalifi: Mirror Ball

For her first solo exhibition at Tabari Artspace, Almaha Jaralla invites the audience to join her on a journey through Abu Dhabi’s constructed and social worlds from the 1980s until the present day. The visual artist has produced a series of mixed media works on canvas that depart from the artist’s own archival family portraits taken in Abu Dhabi during the 1980s. Jaralla understands these intimate portraits as a window into the essence of the city during a period of rapid social and physical transformation in the Gulf.
