ABOUT 'CORRUGATED PAINTING #2'
This work of Luke’s varies slightly from his regular use of cane painting. Alternately, Luke has used a large, soft, rounded brush to create soft splatter work. The background of this painting is black and covered with a soft silver sheen, produced through the use of a fine aerosol mist. There are then layers of splatter work starting with dark and light turquoise, followed by light grey and finished with white. The work is highly textural, impasto mixed with the splattered paint has produced a dense surface which Luke encourages his audiences to touch, as the splatters can be enjoyed both visually and through the aide of texture.
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.
