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]
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.

Ti Bleu and Ti Blanc
His father smelt of saltwater, rum and pipe tobacco. His face was lean and leathery, the beard a different shade from the hair upon his head. Jacques studied that face, trying to remember it from before. He didn’t understand how to carve time into weeks and months and years. He only knew it had been so long that he could barely recall his father’s face.

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

Your light seems to me perfect…”

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’?”

“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.
