Aysha Khalid Abdulla

Aysha Khalid, a Bahraini artist studying Fine Art at Leeds Beckett University, delves deeply into themes of emotion, pain, and intuition within her art.

Her creative journey unfolds through a meticulous exploration of various abstract techniques, including swift spontaneous markmaking, deliberate slow mark-making, splattering, dripping, and scribbling. Each stroke and gesture, aims to evoke a sense of awkwardness and discomfort, serving as a poignant reflection of her rheumatic hand stiffness and pain. Recognising the challenges faced by individuals struggling with chronic pain in articulating their experiences verbally, Aysha has turned to abstract art as a profound means of expression.
