Shahkaar - In Conversation with Sumaya Durrani  
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]

New Blood Art about Sylwia Kaden  
10/19/16 Posted 10/19/16

"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]

Jamian Juliano-Villani's Awkward Paintings Make Discomfort an Asset   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Jamian Juliano-Villani at Studio Voltaire October 1st - December 11th
Posted 10/17/16

“I’d never put this shit in my house, ever,” Jamian Juliano-Villani told Hans Ulrich Obrist during a Frieze Week artist talk. She was referring to her own paintings, installed around the audience at Studio Voltaire. There is nothing pretty about Juliano-Villani’s garish, and slightly disturbing, cartoon paintings—no offence to the artist, and probably none taken. Juliano-Villani began painting four years ago, after leaving New Jersey and moving into an apartment in New... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Han Yangling (Han Dynasty Yang Tomb) in Xianyang, Shaanxi, China  
10/4/16 Posted 10/8/16

The most famous burial ground in China, must be that of the First Emperor of Qin Dynasty, who employed a gigantic terracotta army to guard him in the afterlife. In the ensuing Han Dynasty, one of the emperors employed an army of smaller scale and smaller statue. Instead of human-sized terracotta warriors, this so-called Jing Emperor could only afford to have earthen ware torso armies, with wooden arms, which by now have completely rotten away, thus this army of cripples of one-third...

My Favorite Calligraphy and Monument at Great Mosque of Xi'an, China  
10/1/16 Posted 10/5/16

There is a Great Mosque in Xi'an, China, though the main buildings had distinctive flavor of Chinese architecture, amidst Arab characteristics. I loved a group of wooden scrolls hanging by the entrances to the main hall - gold-filled calligraphy carvings on blackened wood had a pleasing contrast and each character looked like a finely composed picture, perfectly balanced and centered, and full of flowing beauty. Even the chipping of the black paints became well-integrated elements of the larger canvas. I... [more]

My Favoritate Bronze Artifacts at Shaanxi History Museum, Xi'an, China  
9/28/16 Posted 10/4/16

Shaanxi History Museum in Xi'an, China had many ancient artifacts due to the fact that it lies in the cradle of Chinese Yellow River civilization. My favorites there were not very flashy. I liked a shallow basin very much, for the unusual shape, the beautiful interplay of the green bronze and the red rust, and above all, the fine inscription in the middle of the basin - eight characters in the ancient style and hardly legible for a person like me without special training. My second favorit... [more]

My Favorite Sculptures at Terracotta Army Site, Xi'an  
9/21/16 Posted 9/30/16

The famed Terracotta Army of the First Emperor of Qin Dynasty in China impressed not only with the sheer numbers of those soldiers, generals and horses, but upon close inspection, the endless variations of those individuals, each one of them seemed to have a distinct look and personalities, a far cry from cookie cutter mass production one might have suspected. The most impressive was a Standing Archer - whose stylized yet naturalistic posture and his impassive face emitted an aura of... [more]

My Favorite Sculptural Artifacts in Sanxingdui, Guanghan, Deyang, Sichuan, China  
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  
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  
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]
