Wahab Painting Exhibition Opens Today

DATED: 11 DEC 1994

An exhibition of recent paintings and drawings by Wahab Jaffer opens today (Sunday) at 11 a.m. at Chawkandi Art Gallery, Clifton.

Wahab Jaffer likes to paint spontaneously, without any preconceived ideas, letting the paint and the brush lead the way. This is still the case with the recent work, with one obvious difference, he says and calls it the Monochrome Series in which the paintings are devoid of the usual bright colours.

For some reason I wanted to experiment with monochromatic shades. This may be because of the general ambience of dread around me, or my desire to find the forms beneath the colours, or a combination of both,” he explains. The exhibition will continue till Dec 26 (11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily).
