Ali Nassir is a precise painter: he only shows what the viewer needs to see. If portraying chaos is intended, only chaos is shown, without its constituents. It is the same with colours. Certain paintings are elaborate yet any extra move is excluded. They are minimal in their process not their product. These are urban paintings, products of a contemporary world, very personal, solitary and independent. Ali Nassir’s paintings are the opposite of abstract painting: they build no surface, are rather layered down to their depth. They divert attention from their materiality. They are devoid of mathematical precision of abstract paintings, enjoying the crude solidity of scaffolds. They are not painted for the pleasure of any universal mind and remain self-assured and indifferent to perfection. They are not painted to make anywhere look good. It is years now that they are following the same path, indifferent to receiving attention. Like a fair lady, they know their presence will be noticed.
