38 individually painted shapes to give the impression of a vast landscape as seen from a great distance or height. Features fields, mountains, hills, clouds and sky.
The sky in particular features a carefully mixed and painted gradient as day turns to night. The shadow of a cloud mass can be seen extending to its left, and into the sky.
There is the illusion of space, but all sections are laid next to each other on a flat surface, and the mind follows the shapes through time and fills in the details.
This is an original composition that required careful measurements and skillful handling of tools and pigments to achieve the desired effect of colours constrained to crisp straight lines. The divisions between the sections are straight and quite visible. They often catch the light, and when they do, highlight the sections surrounding it.
This minimalist landscape seems to shift in tone as the day progresses. It is visible even in dark conditions, such as at night: the clouds and sky catching and reflecting even the slightest hints of light. The overall effect of the painting is quite bright and vibrant, however, with a strong colour contrast between the top (blue) section and bottom (brown).

Based in: Hyderabad
Abdullah Khan is a painter whose works 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 4d 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
His artworks are exquisite creations made by hand, with hundreds of layers and unique colour palettes in a technique he's mastered over 4 years of painting: clean, crisp lines separating blocks of colour. He always starts from scratch, on a blank piece of paper. Most of the time there is a concept or subject behind a painting that had particular significance or had inspired him based around which an artwork is created. He mixes his own paint, never using paint direct from the tube, and using hardware brushes for their granular texture to compliment his precise, speedy brush strokes. Quality materials are used to ensure longevity: these paintings should last for many decades if properly maintained. They take weeks and sometimes even months to finish. On occasion he paints murals on walls and also takes commissions and will paint something specific to your idea or space.
