“Ek Lamhe Mein Bikhar Jata Hai Tana – Bana” by Mariya Shaikh and Minal Perves at Art Chowk – The Gallery

Our life is a work in process, a spiritual journey. To me, art is a way of expressing the inexpressible. Through my art I would like to share this wonder of our existence Mystical stories. Like to have emotions simulate what I paint rather than a particular visual image, My work is predominantly figurative, semi abstract and representational. Places in my life; and those I saw in my dreams and memories. these visuals highlight positive image and inner beauty of Grace. Focusing on hidden powers and potential. My spirit for the search of true love responsibilities as active member of our society. As I evolve as an artist, I always ask to myself, what is Grace? What came first: our love for God or God’s love for us? I have gravitated towards abstraction and painting intuitively. Colors and beyond is how I would simply describe my work. I get inspiration from life itself, my journey, reading and meditating, but then I have to put everything aside. Somewhere between abstract and realistic expression, my artwork is an opportunity to consolidate the inner and outer worlds. Like a mirror, the outer journey seems to reflect an inner journey.
Medium I use Textile mix media – Mariya Shaikh

Minal Pervez has been imagining shapes, figures, and forms in everything around her unintentionally since her childhood. This can mean a face appearing on paint peeling off walls or imagining a ladyfinger as a lizard. The list goes on. She is a textile artist-designer. She paint canvases with oil and acrylics fusing embroidery within them to give it a 3D look. She also experiment with innovative textile technologies on diverse fabrics. This lets her create textile art pieces. She observe figures and forms out of those pieces which assist her in designing wearable textile accessories. Simply put, her canvases act as a steppingstone to my final products.
