"Painting for me is like composing a symphony," says Mohammad Ali Bhatti. "Color, textures, forms and shapes are my instruments of creativity." Mohammad's latest series of paintings is deeply inspired by mysticism and the connections between divinity and mankind in the modern world. He draws on the energy around him in creating his paintings, making intuitive responses to the variable sounds, melodies, rhythms, and textures in the classical music he listens to while painting. "I approach the canvas with an idea, a concept, or a theme that inspires me to begin with random marks and shapes."
The visual interest in his paintings is heightened by multiple layers of acrylic, oil, resins, spray paint, randomly torn magazine and book pages, design patterns, and calligraphic elements which help him to create rich imagery. He utilizes intense vibrant colors applied in bold strokes, generating an exciting character to his canvases. This series of paintings reflects contemporary conflict, confusion, and the chaotic condition of the world. Complexity of design occurs spontaneously and intuitively in the painting process: layering, overlapping, and juxtaposing forms, signs, and symbols into an interplay of movement and energy. "My ultimate goal," Mohammad concludes, "is to offer the viewer a creation that captures the attention and expands the imagination." In addition to his recent works, Mohammad will also be displaying some of his portraits, watercolors, and Southwestern paintings.
