Exhibition of LCWU artists’ work kicks off
LAHORE: A painting exhibition by three artists from the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU) kicked off at the Shakir Ali Museum on Monday.
LCWU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Sabiha Mansoor inaugurated the exhibition. The artwork of Amber Munir, one of the artists, is based on her thesis entitled “Transformation” and depicts names of God and verses from the holy Quran. She said she tried to portray the relationship between symbols and the geometric methods and the facts prevailing in nature. Her work tries to highlight the profound aspects that authenticate the presence of God in all the concepts and creation.
Paintings of Ayesha Farzand are based on he thesis entitled “History of Keffiyeh and its current interpretation”. Ayesha tries to educate the people about the exact meaning of keffiyeh (Arab traditional headdress) and to change the views of people about the keffiyeh becoming a symbol of terrorism or fashion across the world, including Pakistan.
Rabia Yaseen’s work is based on her thesis entitled “Sensation of Realization”. Being literary imagery collected from the immensely rich Punjabi and Persian literature, Rabia’s paintings are intended to be a sensational awakening. Her work is all about freedom from rigidity, complexes and uncertainties.
A large number of art lovers visited the exhibition and praised the work of the upcoming artists.
