Homeland exhibition by Ray Axiaq

Axiaq’s passion for art began as a boy and never left. ‘Homeland’ is an exhibition of semi-abstract paintings that convert Axiaq’s innate artistic soul with his adult experiences. In this first time Solo Exhibition Axiaq explores and physically responds to the Maltese landscape with a collection of large scale semi-abstract, vibrant canvases.

The artist draws his inspiration from the natural patterns and man-made divisions of land that form the grids that map out the way we live and work the local terrain. Axiaq uses a variety of materials within the pictorial space that are tactile and symbolic of his former career and life in construction and land development. This diversity and understanding of the land haspromoted a natural and strong affinity, which enables his artistic career to propel and flourish. It is second nature for Axiaq to combine his artistic practice with his love of these familiar materials.

Axiaq’s affinity with the land pushes his vibrant, painterly landscapes towards a unique and personal signature. The bright, colourist compositions show his natural skills and his sense of risqué and adventure.
