Berg

37 x 27 in. | acrylic on canvas | 2016


berg-abdullah-khan


Multiple polygon and triangular sections to form a composition of a floating iceberg though deep arctic waters, seemingly weightless yet massive.

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, as are the brush strokes. They often catch the light, and when they do, highlight the sections surrounding it.

Color palette includes varying combinations and hues of prussian blue, cerulean blue, light blue, turquoise, zinc white and titanium white.

Quality materials are used to ensure longevity: This painting should last for many decades if properly maintained.
