Anthony James, Light

23 February - 21 March 2023

Opera Gallery Dubai is delighted to present Light the first solo show of Anthony James in the region. While collectors have been exposed to his artworks in various locations in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, this will mark the first time that our entire gallery space is dedicated to James and his sculptures.


For this occasion, the artist and the gallery have worked together to propose a curated selection of standalone sculptures, mural pieces and furniture. There is no doubt that the combination of materials, the use of lights, and shapes based on sacred geometry contribute to a certain mystique surrounding James’ works. It is not uncommon for passerby and collectors to gaze at Jame’s sculptures for a prolonged amount of time, their minds wandering about the structure of the piece, or being hypnotised by the beauty in its simplicity.


We invite guests and collectors to step into the light, and enjoy a whimsical experience of shapes, textures and colours.
