Adil Yusif has chosen an abstract way to comprehend the laws of the universe.  During the course of a transcendental journey to the depths of his subconscious, he draws aside the veil over the surreal world of his soul, plunging the spectators and the critics of his art into an unavoidable collusion, provoking them to join in the process of creation and challenging their senses in a game of aesthetic perception.
He is interested in the interaction of plastic forms. Changing the layers of paint, in various stages, with immense patience and following only his intuition, is his preferred method of creating. Using the collage technique, he achieves the relief-like textures of his canvases, and from that moment on, his paintings begin to “live” with movement in the space while revealing their sacred meaning. In his paintings one can hardly find accurate plots, faces, or figures, but simultaneously, they exude the power of his emotional perception of the world with related philosophical concepts.
