SALEH ABU SHINDI
'VOCABULARY OF LINES AND COLOUR'
 
May 4 to 31, 2010

 Saleh Abu Shindi has explored a range of styles and techniques over his artistic career spanning more than 50 years. In his more recent work from 2006 to 2008 he embraces colour and lets his emotions dictate the works. These predominantly small works are intense bursts of energy and expression with complex layers of colour, line and movement.

The results are harmonious pieces showing, in some cases, the sensuous qualities of the paint and, in others, a subtle building of the forms.

Although the works are a break from Abu Shindi’s more recognizable drawings and paintings of landscapes, village scenes and spiritual explorations, these show a continuation of Abu Shindi’s journey through very individual and intuitive expression while drawing on his influences over the years.

'I dislike repeating myself and therefore work hard to create a new development of traditional elements and techniques and give them a unique and distinct perspective.'

Saleh Abu Shindi
