THE FOREST STORIES
The artist is trying to remind us of something important that we don't pay enough attention to anymore -- nature as our saviour. That's what makes life palatable, and in certain cases, enjoyable. One can connect the dots of this story with the help of the fact it's the book Gossip from the Forest that 'inspired' Sara to embark upon this creative journey, considering it through binaries such as 'hope and fear' - Peerzada Salman
SONGS OF SPRING - FRIDAY TIMES
When I meet her she tells me about “sleeping colours”: the ones blanketed by other colours. She works intuitively building the layers of her paintings. The works have a primitive, rapid movement, and she revels in her technique - Zehra Hamdani
COLOURS OF THE SOUL
"My day to day approach to life is fairly balanced. Painting gives me license to plug into the pure freedom I enjoyed as a child, without this I would be incomplete. By being creative, even writing, I take risks with an abandon I don’t live by."
INTERVIEW WITH SUNDAY MAGAZINE
WHAT ROLE DOES THE ARTIST PLAY IN SOCIETY? Artists provide a space where people can be themselves. Highlighting the importance of connecting to oneself and others through creative expression, and broadcasting that connection through media, literary, visual or performance art is an extension of this. They can also call attention to issues that need a voice, and it is essential they support the next creative generation in all fields.
THERE IS BEAUTY YET
Communicating meaning without figuration is challenging, in Sara Khan's work it appears she is inventing a new still life idiom. The artist's art practice, the skillfully fused brushstrokes, is based on a passion for painting and the desire to explore the medium creating beauty that is haunting though enigmatic - Marjorie Husain
A MOMENT OF GRACE - TRIBUNE
"It would be simplistic to label the pieces positive or negative depending on colour schemes, they are products in part of self-examination, exploration, incomprehension and gratitude, they are concrete proofs of my belief in life."
