Nabeel Majeed At Gulmohar Art Gallery

http://karachi.metblogs.com/archives/images/2007/11/nmG03-thumb.jpg A solo exhibition of sculptures by a creative young artist Nabeel Majeed opened at the Gulmohar art gallery, today.

The artist, a young Karachi School of art graduate has skillfully carved marble into figurative abstractions to be displayed in the exhibition. His work is a combination of interesting shapes, curves and concepts put together under one roof. The two sculptures one in black and another on in white titled mother and child, both of them carved into a drop shape form within which the mother holds firmly her child are absolutely beautiful, besides his carving on flat marble slabs too are highly inspirational.

By looking at the art work one can really feel Rabia Zubairy’s sculpting style influencing the artist. Another weakness one may find in some of his work is the a slight lack of interest imposed by strong horizontal / vertical lines created within the sculpted form, like in case of the piece titled “surrender -2” the use of a strong cylindrical form, perpendicularly with an other cylindrical form make the statement a bit too strong.

The exhibition on the whole is highly inspiring and leaves a wonderful impression on it’s visitors, and is sure worth paying a visit.

The exhibition will continue till 26th of November 2007, from 10:30 am to 7:00 Pm Daily.
