The installation artist or textile sculptor career
When I was in BFA, one of my professors repeated a sentence again & again "Do a dialogue with your art work on daily basis". Firstly it seems difficult but once I started it, I realize that curiosity, openness and dialogue are most important things for engaging with art. Moreover, every art even a single dot has its own visual language for every individual, which is different from our normal spoken language. After a while, I have found that art can cause emotions of living beings, especially human, even a solitary emotion can be reason of art. On the other hand, instead of inquiring whether an artwork is good or bad, we should consider a work of art as an opportunity to discover meanings for inner vision. I was astonished by this analysis and that whole investigation was major ground for my interest in visual arts since then. This interest increased when I recognized that in the present world, all kinds of new media, concepts, behavior and devices have entered in the domain of the creative art, demonstrating a whole spectrum of new artistic practices. After enrollment in visual arts, I wish to assimilate new input and perspectives beneficial to my future artistic creation.
Being a textile artist, my recent work is an exploration and representation of organic forms. Their mystic transformation into complex patterns and surfaces always appealed me a lot. Experiments are simple but have visual detail in it. When I am creating I enjoy exploring how my ideas can grow throughout the making process, in specific the close connection between materials, processes, concepts and creative thinking. Given that textiles is such a tactile medium it allows me to think with my hands, as the feeling of cloth, fiber and thread under my fingers gives me the feedback I need while creating and helps to further my concepts and ideas. Stitch by stitch I create with the replication of small pattern units designed from shredded gauze fabric. This work has been published in Textile Artist Organization, London and Textiles magazine by Art Wear Publications, Australia.
So far on my foundation in BFA I experimented with various creative possibilities through different approaches, materials, media and techniques including fibers, sculptures, weaving, tapestries, photography etc. My current work is the result of previous trials and which grown up step by step. Since February 2015, I am working with an art gallery as a fine artist. This job expands my knowledge about different cultures, history and architecture of the world as well as my painting skills and developed my understanding about color, light and shadow, balance and weight, and composition. Furthermore, I am freelancer writer at Textiles Fiber forum, Australia. Keeping in touch with this art community is vital for me, it is a community where no matter where you live or whatever your background, you can meet with like-minded people to interact with and discus views ,exchange ideas learn new things, find new contemporary artists and see new exhibitions.
Engaging in what happening within the art world today is also beneficial to my work, living in Faisalabad has not given me ample opportunity to visit galleries. So, I always tried to participate in online artists talks on different forums, visit online galleries and artists. I have also attended few online workshops.
If I take a look on my future career then I found myself as an installation artist or textile sculptor in galleries or other public places.
