This spring, to mark the season of creativity and new beginnings, Selections invited Jean Boghossian and Ayman Baalbaki to work together. The resulting collaboration led to a stunning series of paintings blending the two artists’ distinctive approaches, from Boghossian’s burning of his canvasses to Baalbaki’s florally-inflected impressionist paintings. Bruno Corà, art critic and president of the Foundation Albizzini Collezione Burri in Città di Castello in Umbria, Italy, joined the two artists to observe them at work, and shares with us his insights into the significance of their collaboration. As well as reading more about this exceptional experience in the following pages, your own exclusive window on the artists at work can be found on our website. It is also an honour to have Bruno as our special guest curator for this issue. Read on to discover his ten favourite works.
