About "Along the Moonpath"

The sky in this piece has been "painted" in candle smoke to give it a warmer look compared to the sea and the land mass. Charcoal and white soft pastel were then used to create detail. To me this piece is about following your dreams. Following the moon light, with all its connotations of lunacy, the supernatural, shape shifting and magic. A path where you might walk side by side with dragons and unicorns. The path less trod; where you are marching to the beat of a different drummer. As a creative person I feel as if many of my choices and desires are very different from the mainstream, and difficult for most main-streamers to understand. They consider the choices I make to be a kind of lunacy. Yet they fail to understand that this "choice" is hardly a choice at all. Its like a siren song that once heard will haunt you for the rest of your life. A call to be true to yourself tugs constantly on your soul and the moonpath beckons; leading to the promises of what could be.

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.
