About the Artist:Aleah has created works in which whimsical and geometric forms, reminiscent, of Paul Klee or Joan Miro, float across multi-layered backgrounds impregnated with a dazzling array of materials. The Iris/Giclée process has proved to be the perfect means for translating these extraordinary works into print form because it is capable of capturing fine gradations of tone and color as well as the varied textures and surfaces of the original pieces.
"I have had fun creating a visual vocabulary that speaks in a variety of ways. I am inventing unique shapes meant to provoke a response from the viewer." Color is always key in Koury’s work. "I believe a color gains importance because of the color placed next to it. I feel this created visual electricity is always unique and stimulating." ‘Playful’ and ‘powerful’ are words that symbolize Koury’s bold approach.
Aleah Koury has participated in numerous one man and group shows across the United States. Xerox Corporation, Varian, Kaiser Permanente and Eastman Kodak as well as those in Japan, Hong Kong, France and Germany are among the many corporations that have included his work in their collections.
