Pretty Can Be Gritty
01 Oct,2015
The works of art in this exhibition are lush in their treatment and yet the issues of urbanization these attempt to engage with are not a local, but a global phenomena. A 'glocal' phenomena, which is dealt with a light touch of irony and a sprinkle of satire. Saba Khan's uses kitschy materials to create satirical paintings depicting layered deserts and houses. Sara Khan uses bullet holes to symbolise body piercings in portraiture and reveals violence in contemporary society while Sausan Saulat's paintings of utilitarian objects on flower-adorned wallpaper pushes this paradox even further.
