Rijah Chhapra, Hamza Iftikar, and Asad Kamran Outsider Art
Faraar Gallery is pleased to present Outsider Art, an exhibition of new works by Rijah Chhapra, Hamza Iftikar, and Asad Kamran. The show brings together three emerging artists’ diverse interests, influences and art practices.
The works in this show are varied in their expression. From Asad’s intuitive, gestural, and whimsical handling of paint on canvas; to Rijah’s intricate worlds within human organs; to Hamza’s inward reflection through self-portraiture, these three artists share an urgency to create something. They draw upon abstraction, illustration, fantasy, representation, design, and other visual forms to make sense of the world around them. In order to counteract the business of their daily, perhaps more “practical”, career pursuits, they turn to art as a constant source of strength and grounding. Their creative practices provide solace from hectic life commitments, and room for play in the face of rigidly prescribed work structures. Each of them feels compelled to create art as a means to explore themselves and their lives on a deeper level.
