Khalid Alzayani –  An Hour in the Shower

Alzayani’s work is nothing if not energetic. With titles like An Hour in the Shower, and I Am So Happy That You Are Mine, his works are bright, lively and playful. But despite seeming spontaneous, each colour is systematically painted one after the other, in a sequence of visible layers. In An Hour in the Shower, the drips falling down the works delineate between the underpainting and the subsequent layers, exposing that the green and yellow layers were painted last as they drip over the purple underneath. Rather than melding together colours, Alzayani focuses on layering to create a methodical yet spontaneous painting.
