Shayema’s solo sets at EMK CentreCultural Correspondent
Young US expatriate artist Shayema Rahim’s paintings present her emotion through the delicate use of vibrant colours and lines. Her ongoing solo exhibition titled Vision in Encaustic features 20 paintings at the Edward M. Kennedy Centre at the MIDAS building in the capital.
The artist has created abstract and semi abstract paintings mostly with encaustic, a paint consisting of pigment mixed with beeswax and fixed with heat after its application. She has also created paintings with other mediums such as acrylic and pastel.
Use of vibrant colours in her multilayered compositions is very interesting. Some of these paintings are easy to communicate, when some creates enigma.
Such a painting titled Wisteria depicts a garden. The branches of the trees have been created with long strokes of vivid green while splashed shades of red representing flowers together make the painting eye catchy.
Another displayed work titled City 02, done with acrylic and pastel, features urban landscape in semi-abstract manner.
Another urban landscape titled City of Arbaaz, done with encaustic, also attracts the viewers’ attention for its interesting composition done from the bird’s point of view.
In her encaustics work titled Cherries, Shayema has painted image of three cherries with spectacular shades of red and brown.
Another interesting abstract painting titled Confusion also draws attention for its spectacular colour compositions.
Beginning on January 02, the exhibition will remain open for everybody from 9:00am to 8:00pm till today.
