Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

164 separately painted layers to form this chaos vs ordered composition. The black in the background is not really black at all, but three sections each of deep blue, deep green and deep red, from top to bottom.

The whites are simply that, white, except most sections have additional layers for extra luminosity. Brush strokes are visible but with an overall fine surface finish. The cubes and stripes were initially masked to paint the dark background so it wouldn't affect the quality of white. Each small cube on the left has three distinct sections, one face and two sides, all painted separately. Which means that due to the large amount of lines, the effect of light is quite stunning, reflecting the edges of their lines from different angles.

As a universal law of nature, things tend toward chaos and disorder when left to themselves, and energy is required to bring the system back to an ordered, coherent state. Thing is, as entropy is reduced and things get more and more organised, you tend to need more and more energy to remove the last remnants of chaos, a perfectly organised and efficient system always achievable yet ever so slightly out of reach.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Hyderabad

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.
