ABOUT 'Cane Painting #14 (Taste the Rainbow)' & Visual Description
This large vibrant painting features the five colours of Starburst lollies, painted in order of Luke's preference of their corresponding flavours. Starting with a red background for strawberry (Luke's favourite), Luke then used a paint roller for grape-purple, a large brush for green-apple, his cane to paint the lemon-yellow, and finally orange paint drips for to represent orange flavour (Luke's least favourite).
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.
