The Blue Phase

The Blue Phase: The Root Identity

The Blue Phase for Abdul-Al reflects an intense visual memory of Acre’s seashore, its maritime culture, his family house and the secret alleys of his city. After the exodus, the lost homeland was painted from live scenery of the Lebanon which is very like Palestinian scenery. This series contained reiterated maritime elements in shades of blue, embellished vibrant colours and large textured strokes. Blue hues fishing scenes dominated many of his Acre canvases.

Works from this series have an abstract impressionist style as they carry a vivid emotional aura, sometimes a feel of contemplation. There is a lyrical, inner energy quality in these paintings.
