Valley Of knowledge / 2021
Moving between abstraction and figuration and free forms, Rene Saheb’s dense and Multicolored paintings, hint at her subconscious. A release, a journey through a prima valley, where her inner self is unfolded and Knowledge is sought and found.
She works intuitively using expressive brush strokes and vibrant color. These organic and nature-inspired paintings resemble botanical studies, of a world that is lush with flowing fields of color punctuated by looping floral and biomorphic forms. They feel ancient in the sense that they look like the beginning of the natural world. She continues to use the language of metaphor and brings in daily incidents or concerns, usually satirical Proverbs of our rich language find a place in the paintings.
Using different mediums she inserts delicate lines in fields of color in these invented landscapes of her. A dreamy land where birds are set free and the flowers and Fiona grow and are allowed to reach their bloom. Her Raw geological formations, and landscapes oscillate between harmony and tension, perhaps mystical but at the same time naturalistic.
