Ibadullayev becomes a follower of abstract art, to which he consciously strove in the “unconscious” formation of a creative attitude. “Subject abstraction”, a direction of abstract painting, which the artist chose as a plastic embodiment of his artistic identity, is based on a combination of abstract background with a graphic representation of objects and figures, including nudes in real life. He paints with fluid, watercolor, broad, sweeping strokes. The artist does not cover the entire surface of the canvas, leaving a space that is open to the imagination of each person, as if thereby drawing the viewer into his intellectual puzzle, offering a game based on feelings and associations.
“The background of his paintings seems to arise spontaneously when the free space in the painting begins to animate the objectless world, it spreads, boils and bubbles, forming fantastic pictures. Through the shimmering play of color combinations, the artist is trying to show the structure of the material world, its moving, ever-changing entity. Here the crystal raindrops reflecting in the sunlight are scattered in the expanse of heaven, while foamy sprays of water elements are dissolved in the air, or scorching sparks bristling in all directions reach the soft, cotton clouds, and the funnel-shaped wind currents blowing into the deep can destroy all living things. And the subtly reflected recognizable image of an object or a living being, such as blood-juicy poppies calling for humanism and love for nature, or cracked juicy pomegranates bursting with vitality, or fearsome lobsters with long horns and hard shells crawling on the canvas start to appear on this space. The naked strangers in the artist’s paintings under the floral flows of love are so magically attractive and chaste immaterial.”
