Shehrezade M. B., originally hailing from Islamabad, Pakistan, is a talented Toronto-based visual artist who creates amazing works by “manipulating Resin and Pigment through various chemical processes, using multiple layers of resin to create depth and dimension in her work,” her website reads.
Though schooled in the traditional forms of art, the artist wanted to break away from the conventional art in both technique and subject matter and decided to develop her own signature style. In 2015, she took on highly charged, gestural approach to non-representational painting and her artworks are fuelled by the conflict between chaos and control that emerges from her conscious mind. She gives importance to her process which gives her the freedom to channel her inner impulses directly onto the canvas.
Shehrezade’s work can be found in private collections around the world and you can see also some of her works on her Instagram account.
02 from the Saltanat Series. This video was taken in a dark room with a spotlight to help online viewers see the depth in the artwork. A resin painting is always 90% better seen in person. All the intricacies and depth are lost in a photograph. Different lighting scenarios bring out different elements in the painting. I always recommend hanging the painting indoors, with a spotlight angled at the artwork for the best viewing experience. Swipe right to see a photograph of the work in daylight.
