Faisal Abdu'Allah at the studio

Faisal Abdu'Allah printing at Magnolia

After weeks of visa delays courtesy of the British government, Faisal Abdu'Allah arrived in the Bay Area on Friday and visited Magnolia today to work on prints for his upcoming show, "The Art of Dislocation."

Abdu'Allah consulted with Stanford Art History Associate Professor Barbaro Martinez-Ruiz and Project Assistant Rachel Newman as he worked on prints on aluminum and paper.

One work was printed in negative on aluminum and etched using ferric chloride to create a subtle background, which was then printed with an image:

"The Art of Dislocation" opens September 28 at the Thomas Welton Stanford Art Gallery.
