Untitled 1 | Fariha Rashid
My work is based on the subject matter “Self”, whatever i feel is depicted in my artworks. The anger, aggression and love. I experience all these emotions strongly regarding various events and they compel me to paint them. It won’t be wrong if i name it catharsis also, as i portray what is inside me. The voices inside my head don’t let me sleep, it is like a film every night playing in my mind of all the events i detest, which hurt me or contrary those events which i wish to happen, self developed memories, happiness created by my own mind.
Composition of my artwork is not chaotic visually; rather most of the paintings give a calm imagery because this is what i want to feel, to get rid of all the anger and hatred building up inside me.
