Islamabad—A collection of 30 paintings by established artist Mussarrat Nahid Imam was put on display on Monday during a press preview at Nomad Art gallery.
The show ‘Silent Voices’ portrays the imagery that focusses on mixed media blending memory of historical images with masterly techniques that call for saving the dying heritage of rock carvings with Karakoram Highway.
Talking to media, the artist lamented over the situation of rock carvings that will sink with construction of Bhasha dam and the coming generations will be unable for even a glimpse of those talking rocks.
She said that her work is a tribute to the artists of those ancient rock carvings which are taking a serious threat as there is no one to conserve them.
The collection has been names as ‘Silent Voices’ as this treasure is making voice but no one is listening it. The exhibition is an attempt to safeguard this dying heritage for coming generations and seek the attention of the authorities concerned towards this art, she said.
“I enjoy exploring different surfaces and mediums and the current theme is all concerning rock carvings made on lasani sheets, while pearl color has been put on surface to give glitter to glowing heritage with over lapping paint that create effects of layer over layer offering a different experience,” she commented on the works.
