    Gajah Gallery is pleased to be joining the 3rd edition of S.E.A. Focus with a solo presentation by Ibrahim. Like a living organism, nurtured and fed, Ibrahim’s career as an artist has steadily grown over the course of the last twenty years. Abstracting Chiaroscuro unveils a selection of his new paintings, showcasing the fruit of his process in abstraction – a sense of beauty unrestricted and free of ideological, psychological, and political encumbrance.

    Ibrahim’s arrangement and juxtaposition of every stroke, line, unresolved shape or unfixed contour is an exploration, and a means by which to achieve the painting’s final composition. The abstraction in his work encourages viewers to attach their own personal and subjective experiences to the pieces. This quality thus creates space for a unique and intimate engagement between the artwork and its spectator. Through his work, Ibrahim attempts to intervene with a burgeoning human experience that has severed the connection between people and objects, altering the collective conscious mind. For Ibrahim, a painted canvas does not indicate a final product—but rather presents the inception of a potential shared human experience.
