ABOUT 'Ebony & Ivory' (2021)

Luke created this gestural painting with his cane, in collaboration with his music therapist, Izumi Nago. Izumi played a piece of music on the piano, and Luke’s intuitive, swaying movements in response are translated into rhythmic black and white paint strokes on canvas. 



The background of this work is white, and black and white paint strokes emanate from the lower middle portion of the canvas. Large, white drip marks can also be seen as a final layer of the work.



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.
