Koel Gallery opened a solo show of Imran Ahmad. IMRAN AHMAD is the Curator at Zahoor-ul-Akhlaq Gallery, and an Associate Professor at the National College of Arts, Lahore. He is a graduate of the NCA, with a Masters in Art Administration from the University of NSW, Sydney. Imran has exhibited his works at various art galleries nationally and internationally and curated a selection of exhibitions in Pakistan and Australia.
In his current body of work, he explores the techniques of drypoint and line etching and shares his personal journey with viewers that also decipher the artist’s interest in studying time and space. He incorporates them in his work to comment on the changing times. “Dots, lines, and tones vigorously scratch the metal to construct images from the conscious, the sub-conscious, and the pleasure of mark making with oozing strength and energy leaves me with abstraction narrating long stories with only a stroke. At the same time, a small word illustrated with thousands of lines.
“These images are my feelings, comments, and catharsis while playing truth and dare with the seasons of life..” Imran Ahmad
The show is expected to run until Dec 16th, 2020.
