The balance in Kassem Amoudi's paintings lies between the positive and the negative, the dynamic and the static, the action and the stillness. He walks that fine line between the form and the formless. Painting, for Amoudi, is a continuous adventure and discovery. He sees shape and form only as vehicles and never as destinations. His destination is something beyond form or shape. It is the abstracted beauty which lies between the source and its reflection in the mirror of reality.
