Anguish – One and Two

Standard

Anguish is a term used in philosophy, often as a translation from the Latin for angst. It is a paramount feature of existentialist philosophy, in which anguish is often understood as the experience of an utterly free being in a world with zero absolutes (existential despair). In the theology of Kierkegaard, it refers to a being with total free will who is in a constant state of spiritual fear that his freedom will lead him to fall short of the standards that God has laid out for him.

About Khalid Shahin

An Arabic Calligrapher and abstract artist, born in Palestine in 1966. My first painting initially were applications of the light-dark technique to the worldly objects around us. Through time l tried to combine and integrate Arabic calligraphy with my abstract paintings to reflect the fibre qualities of paint in dough. Using the color paint realities l directed myself in the direction of abstract works. The fact that l used the concepts in the nature like birth,existence,happiness,joy,sorrow and freedom and use of concrete elements removed my work away from being monotonous. Nature is established on the balance of the opposites. l take these realities into consideration in search of a balanced composition and design. l sometimes perceive, select and design concrete elements as abstract;in materializing my endless search in acrylic,oil,watercolors and mixed techniques.
