Meditative Strokes 2008
Fauzia Minallah's art is inspired by the natural environment of the Potohar, where Islamabad is situated. Its verdant flora is interpreted through the rain drenched light with meditative strokes that entwine colour with lines. Tiny brave flames of oil lamps nestle in the heart of shrines and the hollow of ancient trees to become symbols of history denied and threatened by urban expansion.
