Tanzara Gallery takes pleasure in presenting once again the works of Australian/Pakistani artist Nazia Ejaz who is successfully building a niche for herself in the local and international art market.
Nazia has worked with various artistic themes exploring them in myriad new ways. Her recent body of work is the continuation of the artist’s innovative reflection on the theme of perception and identity. This exhibition titled “This is about nothing II” is a body of work resulting from an in depth study of the correlation between the social environment and our perception of it. Nazia’s work is avant-garde in nature – Emphasizing on repetitive patterns and line, she successfully takes liberty in translating her thoughts into exquisite linear rhythms. Her canvases emphasize on patterns comprising of curves, loops, circles allowing meandering lines to create their own magical effect. The work is imbibed with vibrant coloration and texture. The compositions are balanced and accommodated within a scheme of rhythm and flow. There prevails an atmosphere of ease and fluency bringing a soothing uplifting touch. Highlighting the painterly quality without adding any external element, Nazia successfully renders her feelings through striking patterns and textures, imbuing her canvasses with a refined sense of aesthetics.
Nazia Ejaz has numerous group and solo exhibitions to her credit in various countries including Australia, UK and Pakistan. She received her Graduate Diploma in Indian Art History at School of Asian and African Studies (SOAS) / Sotheby’s Institute UK in 1996 and is recipient of Staff Nomination Award, University of South Australia, 2015. She has a double Masters in Fine Art from The Slade School of Art, London and University of South Australia, respectively. Her work is part of various private and public collections including Clifford Chance London, UK and V&A Museum London, UK.
In keeping with its tradition of offering quality art to its patrons, Tanzara presents Nazia Ejaz’s latest work
