Description
Nirvana 46 KL, FB.648 is a striking work of incredible merit in which French artist Yves Klein appears to have come face to face with British painter Jason Martin. Limiting himself to regal blue, Barakat applies this sole pigment to the canvas and then spreads it meticulously in a (Jean-Claude) Christo styled blanket. As is a signature style of Barakat, the colour is further manipulated by his introducing a swerving circular motion to the paint over and over again until the entire canvas appears like a huge wave. The visual sheen that comes with Barakat’s use of oils successfully traces every single gestural action by the artist as the circular whirling dervishes appear to generate a well intentioned momentum that drives the eye over the painting in utter wonderment. Nirvana 46 KL, FB.648 is a rainbow of one striking colour that has been whipped up into a frenzy and Barakat’s bottomless swell of coloured pigment is positively atmospheric. - (FB.648)
