Hallucinations

Hallucinations
acrylic paint on canvas, original size 30” x 40”
Nadia Al Khun

Our perception of our world, our reality, is comprised of colors, dots, lines, and shapes that are integrated in great harmony. Hallucinations represent a state of mind beyond reality. This can be enjoyable; however, unpleasant experiences can distort the beauty of color and sometimes dominate the hallucinatory experience. This painting presents a background of homogeneous colors (representing pleasant hallucinations) that are interrupted by a vexatious network.

Mrs Al Khun is a genetic engineer and biotechnologist who is now mostly dedicated to art.
