ROMANOVA SVETLANA-ART  
by
3/31/20 Posted 3/5/09

         Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]

Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
by
12/1/16 Posted 2/11/16

As we flock around her right after our final MA Visual Arts First Year Juries and I request some time for an interview as directed by my professor Sir Quddus Mirza (Editor of ArtNow), there is a yes and a no in the answer that I get. The word enigmatic is a constant in all the published material that I’ve read about Sumaya Durrani in my humble quest to know a bit about her and we, the visual arts Master's students frozen in the space of her eloquence, are proof that it’s true. Dur... [more]

Nadia Khwaja - Art Now Pakistan  
by
2/12/16 Posted 2/12/16

STUDIO VISIT ; NADIA KHAWAJA In 1932 sculptor Janet De Coux apprenticed with James Earle Fraser. In a letter from Fraser to his former assistant, he comments on her studio “Seeing your studio and its grand light and very good proportions makes me feel like building one like it here. I particularly like the fact that you had only a few things in it. You really can see and walk around each piece. Your light seems to me perfect…” Coming back from Nadia Kh... [more]

The ‘Pix’torial Survey of Pakistan - magazine review  
by
2/12/16 Posted 2/12/16

by Sehr Jalil Raja “Consequently while making the preliminary foray in to the issue some of the broader predicaments that came to mind were: what constitutes the physical geography of photography today? How are the images from Pakistan embedded in different social, cultural and historical conditions? And what does the experience reveal about the global condition of photography, and how does that (if at all) change our experience of ‘place’?” Rahaab Alla... [more]

Studio Visit: Imran Channa

by Sehr Jalil Raja “I stretch an idea as much as I can, explore all corners of possibilities until the point that there is nothing new left in it for me to experience, it is only then that I move on,” the artist replies to my query on the limits of an idea. I’m at Imran Channa’s studio and absorbed in an exchange of tales. It is an amiable bachelor pad in Model Town with a comfortable sitting area in the center and a studio/workspace, kitchen and bedroom surrounding... [more]

Studio Visit: Irfan Hasan  
by
2/12/16 Posted 2/12/16

Irfan and I were batch fellows at the National College of Arts, Lahore. He chose the miniature department and I chose painting as my major. Paths took different turns after graduation and I kept on hearing about Irfan Hasan’s success and his technique. Some artists mentioned to me here and there how they were taking classes from him to learn the scheme of his art. After a long day’s work in our own respective departments at NCA, Irfan and I head out to his studio a... [more]

TODD WILLIAMSON and GREG WALTER: ARTE DE CAMERA  
by
2/11/16 Posted 2/11/16

TODD WILLIAMSON and GREG WALTER: ARTE DE CAMERA By Peter FrankThe courtship dance between visual art and music has gone on almost as long as has human creativity. Unlike the other art forms, which engage multiple senses and complex cognitive and social conditions, music and visual art stimulate singular responses in humans – visual art acting upon the eyes, music upon the ears. They therefore present themselves as entirely d... [more]

Studio visit ; ANWAR SAEED - Art Now Pakistan  
by
2/11/16 Posted 2/11/16

The large, wall high, wooden stacked bookshelves with glass doors and the high-rise windows of this two storied studio in a close knit residential setting at Waris road enjoys an airy mood. One can’t afford to miss observing a lifetime of collected books; fiction predominantly, immediately upon entering the sitting area on the first floor. I’ve been honored to visit Anwar Saeed’s studio. And I can’t seem to get my eyes of the assortment of books. I inquire about them wit... [more]

SABA KHAN’S STUDIO - Art Now Pakistan  
by
2/11/16 Posted 2/11/16

A girl standing behind her easel and curling her hair with the tip of her paintbrush amidst a lush green spring scene, birds chirping and all that is the generic romanticized image of a female artist. A visit to Saba khan’s studio defied the lies and made me recall a lecture I’d attended in the past MA Visual Arts term. The professor kept on reinforcing that artists are nothing more than ordinary human beings … Saba khan’s work space is located between her bedroom a... [more]

RISHAM SYED ; STUDIO VISIT. Art Now Pakistan  
by
2/11/16 Posted 2/11/16

I’m led through the maze-like route to the annex-studio (at the back of the house) where on the way back I was always taking the wrong turns and had to be guided by my host (the artist). Risham Syed’s corner residence in Model Town is surrounded with dense greenery. The height of the trees gives away the age of the residence. Syed has just returned from a parent-teacher meeting of her son Abdullah, fourteen and daughter Mohrele, nine. Upon entering there is a scent of hist... [more]

Migrations at Studios on the Park explores genocide, political murder, and slavery  
by
1/20/16 Posted 1/20/16

Forced migration is an ugly concept. It ignites scenes of despondent, displaced refugees; of genocide; of family members being killed simply for their political ideology. TAKEN This piece, 'Slave Ship,' was created by David Settino Scott in San Miguel, in memory of James Bird Jr. PHOTO COURTESEY OF STUDIOS ON THE PARK It clashes a bit harshly with the shiny idea of the immigrant who willingly sets out on hi...
