August 7, 2014

Art-lovers from twin cities have to wait no more as the "Four Fabulous Fascinations" starts today (Thursday) at Gallery 06 to be concluded by August 17.

During the exhibition the latest art work of four acmes of fine arts including Fauzia Minallah, Mubina Zuberi, Sajida Hussain and Zohra Amarta Shah would be on displayed under one ceiling portraying nature, environmental degradation, fantasy, child abuse and interaction of women with their environment and society.

Having a strong grip on their brush these legendry artists are likely to attract large number of art lovers to the gallery to enjoy their strong line and colour combinations.

Fauzia Minallah will display her latest series titled ‘Meditative Strokes’ during the exhibition she had preserve the beauty of the abundant trees that add a riot of colours to the capital.

“For me art is not only man made found in galleries and museums, but also out there in nature. In my series,” Fauzia added while making comments on her latest work.

Elaborating further she observed, these trees are the soul of Islamabad and it is painful to see them vanishing in the ongoing mega development projects.

“As an activist i can protest against the destruction of the green spaces but as painter i can at least preserve this beauty,” Fauzia Minallah concluded.

Mubina Zuberi described her work that will be on-display saying as, “My paintings whether they are abstracts or figurative are always about interaction of women with their environment and society and how they react to the social pressures in which they compromise and survive.”

Sajida Hussain categorizes her work in the school of impressionistic cubical activity, which is based on figuration.

She has maintained the integration in formal form and void surface through using soft value and light, which creates an impact of fantasy.

Depicting the child abuse and violence against the children present in the society Zohra Amarta Shah was of the view that, her work reflects abusers and/or children who have suffered, are wounded, have remained silent or gone unheard and are scarred, both physically and emotionally.

“My paintings are a form of social protest, creating public awareness about the issue that might lead to some prevention, as at present, there is no or very limited discussion on this taboo topic,” Amarta Shah added further.
