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.

Featured Painting “Mirage” – A World of Ambiguity  
by
9/22/16 Posted 9/22/16

My Mirage, a fantastic painting, was based on a vision visited me when I was falling asleep but with enough mental presence to get up to make quick notes – a distant town, whose outlines barely discernible, in the manner of those commonly seen in old Dutch or Flemish landscape paintings, overwhelmed by several enormous and boldly sketched black feathers floating above the sky. Behind those dark and somewhat ominous feathers, a delicately pretty pale blue sky flashed through persistently. Ye... [more]

My Favorite Earthenware Artifacts in Banpo Archaeological Site Museum, Xi'an, China  
by
9/18/16 Posted 9/21/16

Banpo Archaeological Site Museum, Xi'an, China featured one of the earliest civilizations originated in China, in the Yellow River Valley, and it showcased many ancient artifacts remarkable not only for historical values, but the refined beauty belying their primitive and humble origins. One such wonder was "A basin with abstracted fish design", whose rich earthy red tone was a thing of great beauty, and the black line drawing geometrical design of fish in multiple variations and arrangements was...

My Favorite Sculptural Artifacts in Sanxingdui, Guanghan, Deyang, Sichuan, China  
by
9/15/16 Posted 9/19/16

The breathtaking artifacts in the archaeology site Sanxingdui (Three-Star Mound) in Sichuan Province, China, astonished people with their exotic to the point of bizarre beauty. For example, this pair of gold-masked busts though had all the prerequisite facial features, but the shape and proportions of those were so strange, that these busts were hardly human, at least not earthly human. However bizarre they looked, they were absolutely to behold. The green patina of the bronze harmonized magical... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Dazu Rock Carvings Grottoes, Chongqing, China  
by
9/12/16 Posted 9/16/16

Dazu Rock Carvings Grottoes near Chongqing, China have wonderful Buddhist and Taoist sculptures and carvings dating back as far as the 7th century AD. There were many fantastic sculptures and my favorite one was a Buddha with a fanciful flying wings atop his crown, which instantly softened and humanized the rather austere and upright Buddha. My second favorite sculpture was a "Circle of Life", which featured many animals and phases of life, a wonderful illustration of the concept of reinc... [more]

My Favorite Sculptural Artifacts in Jinsha (Archaeological) Site Museum, Chengdu, China  
by
9/8/16 Posted 9/13/16

The ancient culture in nowadays Sichuan Province, China was vastly different from those originated in the Yellow River region, the mainstream Chinese culture as we know it. Jinsha (Archaeology) Site Museum in Chengdu, China, featured many mysterious artifacts resembled those we would see in Sci-Fi movies. The most treasurable item was a gold foil wheel of Sun Birds - four cutout mythical birds flying around a cutout swirling wheel, spilling flares just like the sun. Perhaps, it was... [more]

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.”  
by
8/29/16 Posted 8/29/16

“Guilt is not the curse of the human – the body is.” These words, uttered in 1966, characterized a paradigm shift. These words, especially for women, formed the nucleus of the emergence and omnipotence of sin. As women came into existence, they became the synonym of sin and their bodies the essence of sin. It is not an accident that the woman’s body, rather than the man’s, was framed as sin. Forever, well, ever since forever existed, the man’s body was epitom... [more]

My Favorite Paintings at Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing  
by
8/29/16 Posted 9/1/16

Xu Beihong (1895-1953) was a renown Chinese artist, who was uniquely accomplished in both western oil paintings and traditional Chinese paintings. The museum bears his name, Xu Beihong Museum in Beijing had many of fine representations of his works. One of his most famous oil painting was a portrait titled "Sound of Flute", which, though somewhat veered towards sentimentality, was redeemed by the heroine's shagginess, which transported her to the purer and more primitive and private world. Rather than... [more]
