Nahas, who was born in Beirut and received an M.F.A. in painting from Yale, ranges over several styles in his canvases—from dense abstractions, featuring overlapping biomorphic forms and looping outlines that suggest the efflorescence of organisms under a microscope, to stolid representations of ancient cedar and olive trees in his ancestral homeland. These disparate works are united by Nahas's emphasis on tactility and chromatic intensity.
