AAD Gallery & Project  present ‘Expressions’ an exhibition of paintings by Shazia Imran, Ayesha Gillani & Steffie Wallace. After showcasing their artworks in the New York Art Expo, the artists present their work to Sydney audience.
Multi award winning artist and sculptor, Shazia Imran is best known for her expressive mixed media pieces. She draws her inspiration from her travels, exploring the infinite expressiveness of her subjects through watercolours, acrylics and mixed media.
Her delicately multilayered paintings explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and the interplay of light and dark.
Her works have been exhibited internationally and hang in private collections in the US, UK and Australia.
She was invited to participate in 2015 Florence Biennale, where she won the Lorenzo il Magnifico award for her mixed media painting.
“Painting has always been my passion. After completing my Bachelor of Fine Arts, I got the opportunity to spend some years in Paris. This stay left its imprint on my soul. Immersed in a culture that breathed art, I took the opportunity to enhance my artistic abilities by enrolling in a variety of art courses.
My journey through France and the rest of Europe, combined with my South Asian heritage, has produced within me a myriad of thoughts ready to burst forth in color on canvas which I splash with abandonment.
Currently I reside in Sydney and have exhibited locally and abroad.”
Steffie Wallace is an Australian landscape artist who has been painting and exhibiting since the 1970s when she studied Fine Art. Her work is held in collections both in Australia and overseas, and she was the winner of the Lorenzo Il Magnifico Silver Medal for Painting at the 10th Florence Biennale in 2015.
“Contrasting light is the main inspiration behind my landscapes; the complexities and intrigues of capturing these effects and documenting changing weather constitute my main thematic concerns. My work reflects the unpredictability of nature with the emphasis on transitory experience, and the relativity of our status within the natural environment”
