Basil El Halwagy, Somerville, Wash., is currently exhibiting “The Common Denominator” in the University Gallery, Porter Hall, Pittsburg State University.
El Halwagy’s automatic drawing technique embodies a creative dialogue between himself, his work and the world around him. The work explores stages in the creative process that an artist passes and examines how “artist” and context are shaped by our sciences and spirituality.
El Halwagy is fascinated by the ever-changing environment and how individual actions affect entire communities. His drawings on paper narrate an exploration of creativity that allegorizes human history.
The exhibit, on view through Oct. 17, will be open free to the public from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Anyone needing additional information may call 235-4305.
