Statement of Exhibition

    A painting is a powerful tool for visual communication of ideas and has potential to bring changes in the Society. It also speaks about the history because artists paint their expressions during different time period. There may be any form of art; it will reflect socio-cultural conditions of an area with aesthetics.

Nazir Ahmad is continuously working since he graduated from NCA in 1976. Despite his preoccupation in the official assignments he has concentrated and produced considerable work. His focus on the Landscape has placed him at a level where one could enjoy and appreciate his efforts. I saw his work for the first time in 1978 which was a small and handy watercolour consisting of bold strokes and leaving some surface blank, which signalled that he would further progress. After two years one of my friend again showed his work which was treated with more expertise. Later on he came admirer of Khalid Iqbal and received his influence, but quickly found his own way.

He is wandering around Ravi and suburban areas for his expressions in drawings, watercolours and oil paintings. His art is from nature connected with the environment and arranged art elements, an important part of his visual language. Nazir mainly uses harmonious colours to communicate his feelings and visual qualities which seem to be gentle and serene. He uses dabs and strokes of colours to indicate bright light and shadows for capturing the atmosphere of the selected spots with an attempt to describe what is seen in the real life. An illusion of forms is found in his drawings and paintings with simulated textural value. Although some time the effect is flatter, but the tones used suggest illusion associated with brightness from which one could feel delicate, radiant and airy. The tones in the drawings have been created by using hatched and cross-hatched lines blending the forms with each other interestingly and in a controlled manner.
