[#Highlighting a commitment to support the arts, the Corp Executive Apartments – Al Barsha is to showcase a two-week exhibition starting March 3 featuring the works of local artist Jeff Scofield.#]
[#Organised with the support of the Dubai International Art Centre and held under the patronage of ASGC (Al Shafar General Contracting), the show will be launched with a special VIP and media preview on the evening of March 2.
American born Jeff Scofield has extensive experience in a number of artistic fields ranging from modern architecture through to Chinese brush painting which he studied under Oriental masters in Paris and Dubai.
After obtaining a master of architecture degree at Columbia University in New York, he studied art at the Beaux Arts in Paris, and, more recently, has taken up sculpture at the Dubai International Art Centre.
While working as an architect in Dubai, focused on modern buildings with an emphasis on sustainability, Scofield also enjoys creating more personal abstract art, combining vivid acrylic colours and mixed media with materials recycled from construction sites, including plywood, jute, fabric, wires, grilles and other metal objects.
Works range from riveting large outdoor installations to small intimate paintings, with a focus on unusual formats including narrow perpendicular pieces reminiscent of Chinese scroll paintings, which will form a centrepiece to the exhibition.
According to Aamir Pervez, general manager of Corp Executive Apartments – Al Barsha, the show will enable Jeff Scofield’s work to reach a wide audience in Dubai, from guests at the property through to residents and visitors.
“As part of our corporate philosophy, we aim to engage with the local community and events of this kind serve to both provide a platform to showcase a local artist’s work as well as a novel attraction within the hotel. Mr Scofield’s technical refinement is absolutely amazing and would be definitely very interesting for our guests.”
