REVIEW FOR THE DREAMY POOL - PHOTOGRAPHY BY FARAH AHMED
Pools and puddles are up for abstract interpretations at the Taj. This one's surely deeper and more insightful then "Daag achche hain", we think.
Taj Deccan is presenting a solo art exhibition of fine art photography - The Dreamy Pool - by Farah Ahmed, from 19th to 27th September. The exhibition is a projection of natural and architectural forms in the objective abstract genre.
Farah is inspired by the works of Alfred Stieglitz and Ansel Adams - the fathers of American photography - and by the impressionism, minimalism and abstract ex-pressionism of Monet, Seurat, Rothko and Pollock.
In The Dreamy Pool, she explores the poetics of impressionism through black-and-white and colour photography. She searches for beauty in evanescent water bodies of pools and puddles, and expresses them in a loose painterly style with illusory perspectives.
Farah was born and brought up in Bangalore. She graduated in Art Theory and Practice, with concentration in Photography, from Northwestern University, Chicago (USA), in 2006. She has done 3 solo shows between 2008 and 2010 in Bangalore and New Delhi, and 2 group shows in Bangalore. She lives and works in Bangalore.
The photographs are on view from 11:00am to 8:00pm. Please contact 6666-3939 for further details.
