Khalik Allah

Nocturne

Khalik Allah

What he claims is "predicated on spiritual realities", Khalik Allah's portraits seem to me to be about the nocturnal: the myriad dimensions of night, the human experience of the after-dark, and those people keeping strange hours navigating both the terror and enchantment that weaves itself into the darkness. The night has its own inner logic, one with different perceptions and different morals, connected to things much, much larger: time, fear, nothingness, desire, death, forgetting, vision, secrecy, criminality, monstrosity, and possibility.
