Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The artist loves mountains, since he was a kid there has always been a fascination and a primitive urge to climb them whenever he saw them off in the distance, which now seems to have been supplanted by an urge to paint them.

This vision of the iconic twin peaks of Ararat has become one of his personal favourites. He's certainly not the first to be enraptured by these ancient mountains and trying to capture them in paint, but he's applied his spin on it with principles of minimalism and colour fields to give the immediacy of sensation, in the simplest and most direct way, of seeing the mountain.

Artist Profile

Born: 1987

Hometown: Hyderabad

Based in: Hyderabad

After first drawn to painting after being inspired by Cubism's proposal of perceiving the physical, Abdullah Khan creates paintings that play on human vision and perception. His practice focuses keenly on the intersection of abstraction and representation, subconscious and conscious, art and technology. Trained as a mechanical engineer, his research into industrial design lead eventually to art as a profession in 2015 based out of a studio in Hyderabad, India.

He is very much inspired by Picasso, David Hockney, and more recently Francis Bacon. Any number of subjects from his rather broad and arcane interests as well as his own contemplations of changing self and impartial observations of the current zeitgeist inspire his work. His style is informed by technological precision and analog draughtsman-ship with visible readings from cubism, minimalism, the colour theorists, the abstract expressionists, although the diversity of subject matter defy any single classification.
Works are thoroughly researched, precisely mapped and measured before painting in a technique; clean, crisp lines separating blocks of colour, often with visible brushstroke texture. He always starts from scratch, on a blank piece of paper. Most of the time there is a concept or image that had particular significance based around which an artwork is conceived, other times the specific materials or dictate the piece into a composition that complements it. There is an apparent love of paint. As with all art the self and the context is projected which invites subjective readings, which he welcomes as he insists on no particular meaning himself, allowing the work to affect the nervous system and draw a response.

He is very much curious of new and emergent technologies and how they continue to drive progress and further innovation, pushing our collective knowledge forward, and how they affect the sensibilities of form, design, and art. The end result of the work is an object that remains decidedly handmade in the face of increasing automation, despite being possible, directly or indirectly, only by modern technology.
