Emaan’s work is inspired by her hometown of Karachi, the natural world and memory. Her practise is highly meditative, using a diverse range of different paint types and the textures they create, to capture the eclectic sensations of her memories. Her paintings evoke the awe we feel when swimming in the ocean at it’s very bluest, or perhaps standing below the grandest of mountains. Experimenting with combinations of conventional styles and movements styles - action painting, contemporary drawing, abstract expressionism and collage – she is forever in the process of discovering and developing her own unique aesthetic.
