Pigeons and a slice of light
The collection of forty-one paintings, rendered in oil on canvas by incomparable JAMIL NAQSH were displayed at Momart Gallery, and Book named ‘Pigeons and a slice of light’ was also launched. Book is about Naqsh’s most recent painting with a beautiful introduction “Myths and Memories: An Artist’s Inspiration” written by our finest art critic Marjorie Husain.
The painting at display are just breath taking, the colors and the usual rendering of pigeons in various positions is astonishing. All paintings with a singular subject are very different and engaging. Use of various textures shows the command that Naqsh has on his medium.
