Islamabad( Press Release)Satrang Gallery is delighted to present “Life in a play”, a two-person exhibition of Minaa Mohsin and Farazeh Syed.
These two brilliant painters have each created vibrant scenes for audiences and viewers to sink into. These vignettes or slices of life are like the moving parts of a play, at times absurd, at others dramatic, sometimes contradictory, coming together to create a complete journey.
The title of the exhibition references Shakespeare’s often quoted comparison of the stages of life to the acts of a play. These artists choose to depict the female form within these scenes, either directly or through representation, in order to highlight female dynamism – passion, creativity, assertiveness. Sometimes playfully depicted and framed, sometimes more intense, these paintings narrate the story of each unique character.
