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.

"Pastel shades and complementary hues are brought into play with loose circular forms in the paintings and drawings of Sylwia Kaden. The work explores the dynamics of shape and colour and is certainly testament to Man Ray’s theory, that the ‘creative force’ within painting must ‘reside materially in the colour and texture of pigment’ and in the ‘possibilities of form invention and organisation’. Kaden indeed explores the relationship of forms to one another an... [more]
My 2007 oil painting One Fine Day soon will conclude its five-month long exhibition at at McGuire Real Estate Gallery in Elmwood District, Berkeley. This painting, in somewhat sickly moon light tone (pale Prussian blue), depicted a school of agitated and thrashing fish, tightly packed in confining space, bulging eyes telegraphing anguish, straining to escape of a deadly trap they had unfortunately fallen into. The ironic title I chose, perhaps ought to be ascribed to some lucky fishermen. And t... [more]
Practically a next door neighbor to the mammoth Metropolitan Museum, Neue Galerie in New York City was a modest and exquisite museum, which specializes in early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design, and has become much wider known due to its addition of Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I by Gustav Klimt, after a landmark judgement over its ownership, claimed by Österreichische Galerie Belvedere in Vienna, and the original owner's heir, resided then in the US. That Klimt was indee... [more]

One of my favorite museums is the New York Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), of whose early 20th century European painting collections I am particularly partial. My most favorite was a triptych by the German painter Max Beckmann, the mystical and political Departure (1933-35). These beautifully rendered hallucinatory, menacing, foreboding, and just slightly hopeful and redemptive panels, aptly and sadly captured one of the most horrifying moments of human history. These paintings were the answe... [more]

In 1957 an international competition was held for a design of a new city hall. A total of 520 designs were received from 42 different countries. The winner of the competition was Finnish architect Viljo Revell. In 1965 Toronto's fourth city hall opened and still serves as the home of the city's council. The 27 storey east tower and the 20 storey west tower surround the saucer shaped council chamber. The saddest part of the history of our current city hall is that Revell died of a heart attack at 5... [more]
Un grand cri de douleur passa sous ce ciel sombre, une plainte, une voix du mystère, venue de loin, chargée de larmes, noyée dans les ténèbres… seule une petite flamme vacillait encore sur un cierge immobile…elle en eut le sang glacé…
Un froid de loup se fit sentir et la tempête se déchaîna sur ce mur noir, assombri de mystère ; et puis, un grand silence tombait, troublé à peine par le pas d&r... [more]

Les fils conducteurs étaient déjà présents dans les toiles « aux fonds noirs » faisant vibrer et amplifier les images. Depuis, ces fils dorés (peints encore) se sont matérialisés… prendre vie sur la toile en illuminant le fond doré qui désormais émerge des ténèbres, métallique et lumineux … Les éléments ont trouvé leur place sur la...
