Lives and works Western Australia.
Abdul-Rahman Abdullah (b. 1977) is an artist living and working on Wadjuk Nyungar country, in the Peel region of Western Australia. His practice explores the intersections of identity, culture and nature. Working primarily in sculpture and installation, his work has been described as magic realism, creating poetic interventions with the space it occupies. While his own experiences as a Muslim Australian of mixed ethnicity provide a starting point, Abdul-Rahman foregrounds shared understandings of individual identity and new mythologies in an intercultural context. Living and working in rural Western Australia, he provides an alternative perspective across intersecting and often disparate communities.
