Opening Reception: “Earth Our Home” by Rubina Anjum on Saturday, January 13, 2024 at Sip Art Gallery

Join us for the Opening Reception of the captivating exhibition “Earth Our Home” by Rubina Anjum in the Sip Art Gallery at IAMA on Saturday, January 13, 2024.

Exhibition Statement:

The Planet Earth series aims to celebrate the Beauty of the earth from space and to demonstrate alternate ways to view and engage the world. The Concept is the creation of artwork that has been inspired by the satellite images of the earth taken from a distance of 270 to 300 miles above sea level.

The landscapes fuel my imagination and induce adrenaline highs while summoning tremendous peace. The raw beauty of the planet emerges as a series of initially unrecognizable shapes and forms. The paintings present the earth on a grand scale where human impact is difficult to discern, but in some cases is most certainly there. The broad perspective allows the language of the landforms to surface. The Earth communicates stories of events and inhabitants embedded in reality and fantasy: shapes of animals dance in fire scars, wind blows patterns in the sand, and sediment fans out intricate arteries.

Artistic Style: The artistic style employed is a blend of realism with touches of impressionism and expressionism. While the appearance and form of the art may seem contemporary, the techniques used are a fusion of traditional and old masters’ methods for oil and canvas. Additionally, watercolor and oil painting techniques are seamlessly integrated. Some paintings are accompanied by poetry, adding another layer to the narrative and providing viewers with a deeper connection to the artist’s inspiration.

A New Perspective: The subject matter explored in “Planet Earth” is a rare endeavor in contemporary art. The content, scope, and rendering of these artworks may introduce a completely new idea to the art world. The landscapes depicted have elevated and inspired the artist, and it is their hope that these paintings evoke similar emotions in those who experience the exhibition.

Don’t miss the chance to immerse yourself in this extraordinary celebration of our planet. Mark your calendar for the opening reception, and join us on a visual journey through the mesmerizing landscapes of “Planet Earth.”
