About "Arum One and Arum Two (Diptych)"

This diptych of Arum lilies are miniature works. Each tiny painting is 60mm by 80mm. The frames are handmade to go with them. Arum lilies are indigenous to SA and are found most commonly in white, growing abundantly near waterways or wetlands. In this work I explore the concept of colorful shadows. When I first learned color theory I was fascinated by the idea that white is never truly white except for the highlights. I was determined to see it this truly was the case in reality and much to my amazement it is. These two small paintings explore this concept.

About Afeefa B

Afeefa B Alam

Firstly my work celebrates the beauty that is constantly around us. It is homage to THE Creator; an appreciation for all that He has created. I encourage the viewer to "stop and stare" instead of rushing past in life's rat race. Secondly my work is an outlet for my own emotions; a psychological cleansing catharsis and mirror. The subject of any given work is multi- layerd. The moods and undercurrents represent my own internal preoccupations,anxieties and hopes; much of which I am unaware of until I've completed a piece and can see it reflected on the canvas. A common thread that runs through my work is my fascination with light. I love to explore the way it changes everything it touches and how the mood and atmosphere of a piece is totally reliant on the light.I am attracted to the natural world for subject matter, sky, sea, space, botanical flora and fungi amongst others. As a personal principal I refuse to accept that anything is impossible nor do I accept the limitations of human senses as being a definitive criteria for what exists and what doesn't! I like exploring the possibilities of "what ifs" and alternate realities and timelines, painted realisticaly as if they do exist.
