Nirvana 39 KL, FB.676 appears to be the third painting in the Nirvana series in which the red pigment is of a lesser intensity. Barakat appears to show greater emphasis for his manipulation of the paints than for the density of his palette as the circular dervishes appear greater and more animated in ferocity as the paint appears to gradually lessen. In a repeated action Barakat rolls the paint over and over itself into a froth that envelopes the painting like a tumbling dust- cloud. This work almost requires a steady hand to return the colours to earth but it’s single strength lies in the ceaseless energy that Barakat draws on to create this visual wonder. Restraining himself to one colour Barakat appears to challenge all of his other abstract works by introducing a minimal edge to his accomplished ability for abstraction. Reducing everything to a singular colour and a single gestural action, Barakat appears to break down his own complexities to a point of no return because it is precisely here that an ultimate point of departure exists. - (FB.676)
