Solo Painting Exhibition ‘Rang-e-Sehra’ at Revivers Galleria
A solo painting exhibition, titled ‘Rang-e-Sehra’, by Karachi-based artist SA Noory kicked off at Revivers Galleria on Friday.
As many as 29 selected paintings of Noory have been put on display in which he has used water colours on paper as a medium to express his artistic approach and thinking.
A large number of artists and art lovers visited the gallery.
Noory emerged on the art scene in Karachi in 1998 and has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, impressing viewers with his immaculate work.
Noory is a self-taught artist whose initial source of inspiration was his grandfather, who studied art of miniature paintings in India.
Noory said he is happy to be in the cultural capital of Pakistan – Lahore – once again. About his work he said, “Basically I am a self-taught artist. I did go to art schools but the style I paint is entirely mine which discounts the formal and traditional study of painting.”
He added that nevertheless, there seem to be unconscious influences that give any artist’s work a signature look as unique and automatic as handwriting.
“Certainly, what I like to paint is just a natural outflow of what I like to see. It can be a Sufi saint who is lost in love of Almighty, it can be children and a Rajasthani females with their unique dresses and ornaments,” he added. The exhibition will continue until December 15.
