Scene 3 (12s)

[Audio] Baad-e Nau Bahar The tradition of painting trees, flowers and birds have remained a prevalent practice in painting, regardless of the diversified aesthetic canons of the east and the west. The miniature paintings approved trees, flowers and birds or animals as decorative elements; spanning from the Persian to the Mughal style in this specific genre. On the other hand, the western painting cherished nature through, landscape painting by the British artists or, the still-life frames, adorned with flowers or fruits, by the painters like Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, or Vincent Van Gogh. Naela Aamir is a known landscape and cityscape artist having a deep-rooted link with the style and technique of Modern Realism, commonly associated with Khalid Iqbal in Pakistan. She is a Plein-air artist who followed her mentor Zulqarnain Haider whole heartedly by always working on the spot and capturing the shades and shadows of the seasons; she could inhale the fragrance of. Naela loves to paint flowers wherever she could find them; in a pot or vase, creeping over the walls or hanging on the curvy and delicate branches of the Jacaranda, Bougainvillea, or the Laburnum tree. However, in the current show titled as Baad-e Nau Bahar, she has arranged all her favourite flowers at, and near the corners and windows of her environs. In the time when COVID- 19 lock-downs have restricted us to our homes, Naela seems to instill all the colours and fragrance within the frames of her still-lifes with flowers, or trying to capture the ' presence of absence' upon the empty chairs near an open encasement; letting the spring breeze whispering in, and across the flower-vases.

Scene 4 (2m 8s)

[Audio] Baad-e Nau Bahar Bahaar brings with itself a celebration of life with a renewal of vows. The leaves and flowers, breathing out, and twigs embracing around joyfully mark the rejuvenation of Spring. The yellows of Sarson, stretched over vast patches of green, and the wildflowers hanging against and amongst the thorns, advocates life's beauty and resilience, even in the most challenging circumstances. The ongoing unique phase in the history of mankind have forced everyone, including myself, to step back and reflect on one's personal space, whether physical or spiritual. One's private surrounding, whether objects or spaces, are often reminiscent of life's journey and connections. This introspective phase, combined with the promise of nature to renew life, has been the creative drive manifesting in these frames. Naela Aamir 2
