About The Work
The painting is a continuation of a series of works in the same style that I started since 1990.
I Try to apply coloring idea via style in Pure abstraction .. Depends on repetition, similarity, contiguity, and permanence .. In a soft repetitive rhythm ..
Short, close, and equal color spots on the surface of the canvas.. to form a semi-dark area from a distance .. a frequent and monotonous tone
Hussain Sharif was born in 1961 in Dubai, UAE. He studied at the High Institute
of Kuwait and graduated with a degree in theatre design in 1986. He then took
on the post of Head designer at Sharjah TV and began exhibiting his artworks in
the UAE. Sharif’s creations represent a form of expression in which methodical,
forceful and obstinate will for reducing the creative tension is taken to the limit
of the physically defined “object”. He is the founder of the
Emirates Fine Arts Society, together with his brother Hassan Sharif. During the
course of his rich career, he took part in over 40 solo and collective shows and
7 international art fairs.
“I believe that artist should not simply search for old materials used many years
before, and use them as means of identity. The change which started in
our society in mid-seventies is very violent and rapid, and it is happening on
all the levels. In my recycled artwork, Cars, I used cups, plastic bottles and metal
cans. The streets of our cities are really crowded with materials, and the sanctity
of any kind of individual material is lost. I like to recycle my art.”
