ABOUT 'How We Fly'

How We Fly was made with movement and energy at the forefront of the artist’s mind. Aiming to represent the erratic flight paths of local birds, spiraling, zig-zagging, and layered over the top of one another. Moments of stillness are captured in the dabbing effect visible around the edges of the canvas, as though we are watching a video of hundreds of birds in flight. 

 

VISUAL DESCRIPTION OF 'How We Fly'

Energetic linework can be seen spreading from the bottom, right corner in shades of red, green, and purple. Dabs of yellow, red & purple can be seen spreading across the bottom and right-hand sides of the canvas, accompanied by some small sections in the blank space.

 

ABOUT LUKE

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.
