Exhibition on poetic reference, life’s experiences of artists

Islamabad—A group show exhibiting the art inspired by poetic reference and life’s experiences of four female artists started here Tuesday at Nomad Art Gallery (NAG).
The event titled ‘Rafaqaton ke naye khwab khushnuma hain magar, Guzar chuka hai teray aitbaar ka mausam’ (Parveen Shakir) will feature the art by artists including Anjum Ayub, Farrah Mahmood, Samreen Asif and Tayyaba Aziz.
Commenting on this show, founder, director and social activist, Nageen Hyat said, “A work of art is rarely the end product of an artist thinking or reflection. It is, in fact, an intermediary state, a never ending phase of a narrative leading to discovering the inner self. Once that is released, it is for the viewer to enter the realm. This exhibition (March 1 – 6) also leads to, and is a powerful curtain-raiser to the upcoming International Women’s Day exhibition on March 7 (Nomad),” Nageen informed.
Describing her work, Farrah Mahmood said, My work deals with a range of social and political issues.
My recent work is about the on-going situation of Pakistan. So as a nation we have to be strong and face the challenges of war against terrorism. ‘Paywasta reh shajjar say umeed e bahar rakh” is the message for the nation. So the emphasis is on Peace and Humanity and I strongly believe in the ‘silver lining’, she stated.
Tayyaba Aziz said, I describe myself as a cubo expressionist, oil on canvas. My paintings based on one of my favorites poetess Parveen Shakir. Sometimes events from the past have a mind of their own. Memories keep coming back when all we want is for them to disappear.—APP
