Sentiment21st June 2021 - 1st October 2021
Location: Galerie Mayci, Birmingham
Sentiment is an exhibition curated for painter, Faiqa Uppal. She has spent the past year of lockdown pondering, through her work, the power of flowers to convey sentiment.
It seems fitting, therefore, to be presenting these vibrant and colourful
paintings at this time, echoing the season and catching the feeling of
social activity gradually returning.
The paintings retain a freshness and painterly quality akin to more
traditional abstract painting. Nothing is overworked and the
immediacy of the imagery encourages the viewer to engage with
the richness of the painted surface as well as the subject matter.
Faiqa graduated with a Masters degree in Fine Art (distinction)
from Punjab University, Lahore and was awarded a Gold Medal
by the university for outstanding work.
