A solo show of contemporary art paintings by Natasha Malik concluded at Khas Art Gallery featuring “The Life of an Image”on Monday.
Thesolo show of contemporary art paintings was a multimedia series through which Malik explored the introspective artistic process, its challenges, complexities and outcomes. The body of work examined the creative process of art-making and interprets the life of the work once it leaves the artist’s studio.
The artwork exists and interacts within a multitude of systems, which often operate entirely independent of the artist, each with its own vision and purpose. Ultimately, these systems determine the life of the work in terms of how it is perceived, where it will be viewed and by whom, and how it is contextualized.
These thematic concerns culminate in Artscape, a four-player board game the artist has created which enables its players to experience the art world.
