Lives and Works: Hyderabad

 

Abdullah Khan is a painter who's been creating for the past 3 years. His paintings may be described as cubist, conceptual, minimalist. His works are observations and experiments in human perception, vision and colour, and overcoming the challenges of depicting a 3d world on a flat surface using various themes, or concepts. His work was featured in the State Gallery of Fine Arts, Hyderabad, and has done 3 public exhibits. He continues to actively produce, and documents his work at instagram.com/abdullahkhan.art and pigmentartgallery.com

"Painting is a way of depiction, just as photographs are, but they differ in one crucial aspect: a camera freezes time and space into a fixed perspective, whereas the human optic system is constantly registering change. A camera with one eye does not see like two eyes and a brain. We see everything in focus, but we don't see it all at once; that's the point. We take time. Yet, if you ask the average person which looks more real, they would say the photograph, and I'm convinced it can't be true.

Cubism was an unfortunate name and it's a different way of looking and it's about reality and perception. In the art world, Cubism has been greatly misinterpreted as being about abstraction, which it's not. It's about perceiving the physical. Cubism is about how we see what we see.

This is the fundamental idea which drew me to start making paintings on canvas. Paintings, I believe, are able to represent reality close to how we perceive it, which is seeing with movement (space) and with memory (time)."
