Big Bang 2021

Big Bang is a glance into the collection of artworks from blind painter Luke Abdallah. Showcasing a suite of old and new gestural abstract paintings, this exhibition invites you to appreciate the medium and process of painting from Luke’s unique perspective. The heavily textured compositions capture Luke’s creative and emotional energy as Luke responded to personal and global events.

Using a range of brushes, palette knives, and even his cane to apply thick swathes of impasto and acrylic onto the painting’s surface, these expressive marks – sometimes violent, sometimes remedial in their application – embody Luke’s movements.

Big Bang is an online exhibition showing from 3 – 17 December 2021.
