LANDSCAPE AND LIGHT

The work of Ammar Khammash addresses spatial structure, both on the ground in the open landscape and in the painting itself. As nature builds spaces within folds in the land, reflected in rugged topography, and between the horizon and the sky, his works seek to understand nature and dwell on the issues of spatial perception. Khammash explores the human visual process and its evolution from a survival skill to the more inquisitive philosophical obsession of modern humans.
