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.

by Sehr Jalil Raja Laila Rahman’s abode in DHA, Lahore is distinct and otherworldly – an oasis – a home – a dream – all in one. I went there some time back in the summer of 2014 and the artist and her home were both exemplars of wisdom and the ‘taste for life’...My mother always quotes these words, which she read somewhere: “If you want to know more about a person, look for the library, crockery and the garden in their home." This home was al... [more]

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

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]

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]

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.

After a long day’s work in our own respective departments at NCA, Irfan and I head out to his studio a... [more]

In Ryan Mendoza’s Detroit House, Debris of a Financial Collapse Turns into Relief Aid   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
by
Ryan Mendoza at Art Rotterdam February 11th - February 14th
Posted 2/8/16

Is it a sculpture? A political indictment? A social activist gesture? Or maybe some form of contemporary historiography? It’s not really clear how to define or classify Ryan Mendoza’s Detroit House. One thing’s for sure, though: it’s not a house. You could easily be fooled into thinking it is. It’s got a roof, walls, a porch, windows, and a door you can enter through. It lacks, however, neighbors, a path or driveway leading up to it, a connection to the local power grid, a foundat... [more]

Whether they’re doing residencies or research, teaching or travel, or whether they’re simply responding to the contingencies of affordable and available studio space, artists today are in constant motion. What’s the marker of the artist’s studio in this peripatetic climate? Is the artist’s “desk” a piece of furniture, an anchored object?
