The exquisite surfaces of the works in ELEMENTAL, in their complex textures, are an invitation to the viewer to navigate and explore the intensity of the natural world, setting the direction for an individual path of discovery. The subtle, captivating glow of each piece, with its blooms and bursts of color, evokes familiar landforms and transformational shapes. Disentangling distractions from nature, Khan leaves the essence of beauty allowing the images to present themselves as structure and form, providing the opportunity for contemplation.
