Bring on Spring: When COVID Ends (2020)
Luke Abdallah. Acrylic, on reused vinyl banner, 188cm x 89cm (Framed) $1900
ABOUT BRING ON SPRING
This work was created through recycling a bright yellow, vinyl banner. Acrylic paint in layers of yellow, green, blue, purple and white have been added from the middle lower canvas and spread to the top of the work in diminishing layers. This creates the effect of an explosion of colour and activity.
Luke Abdallah is an emerging artist, living and working in Sydney, Australia. Focusing primarily on expressive, abstract painting, Abdallah employs a multitude of tools and techniques to apply paint in swathes of texture and colour. Entranced in his artistic process, Abdallah’s gestural paint strokes capture his actions and movement, forming a rich tapestry of rhythmic energy.
Born totally blind and living with elective mutism, Abdallah incorporates multi-sensory inspiration into his works, often drawing expressiveness from a myriad of stimuli - sound, smell, texture, vibration and taste.
Keenly aware of the importance of accessible practice, Abdallah invites his audience to enjoy his works both by sight and by touch.
