Pure sensations, atmosphere and a dynamic spontaneity characterise Christopher Saliba’s latest exhibition of abstract paintings. The Gozitan artist’s collection, entitled Introspections was produced during the period 2008-2010. Stripped of any visual references or clues, these works are external manifestations of inner impulses that mirror the artist's state of mind at a particular moment in time. Introspections will be held at Auberge d'Italie, Merchants Street, Valletta. It starts showing on April 6 and runs till April 30. It is open daily to the general public between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

In connection with the exhibition, Christopher Saliba produced a thirty-page full-colour catalogue with images of the exhibits being presented. The catalogue also includes critical essays by Professor Joe Friggieri, head of the department of Philosophy at the University of Malta and by Dr. Louis Lagana', art historian and lecturer at the Junior College and University of Malta.

The exhibition is gently supported by Middlesea Valletta Life, APS Bank and Marsovin. A part of the proceeds will go in aid of Inspire - the Eden and Razzett Foundation.
