Purple Haze (2020)
Luke Abdallah - Ink, acrylic and watercolour on paper, 70cm x 50cm $700
ABOUT PURPLE HAZE
Luke has added new splashes of paint on top of an old painting that pre-dates the 2016 fire at the old studio. The original painting which wasn’t completed had ink washes using blues, turquoise and purples and Luke has added more splashes, drips and brushstrokes in the same colours. Finally, some silver and white highlights have been added to give the painting a shimmery 'purple haze'.
(This work has previously exhibited as part of 'Big Bang' Studio Artes online exhibition Dec 2021)
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.
