Luminos: Echoes Whispers from Siwa to Khyber

 

Mansoora Hassans present exhibition entitled Luminos: Echoes, whispers from Siwa to Khyber results from the process of reflection from a variety of original sources. Her explorations through the footsteps of Alexander the Great from Siwa to the Khyber have inspired this series of Pulp Paper paintings and Mixed Media renderings. Seeking a basic commonality of spirit in an increasingly dissonant world, she has used an approach that depends upon a tension between dimness and luminosity to articulate her artistic vision: imagery concealed in multiple veils.

 

Mansoora Hassan was born in Peshawar Pakistan. She received a Masters in Fine Arts from Pratt Institute, New York. At present she is living in Cairo, Egypt. She is co-founder of several organizations including the Friends of the Opera, Egypt. She has served on the board of the World Bank Art Society and of the New Art Examiner art publication and has served as president of the Touchstone Gallery in Washington DC. Her works are in many private and public collections worldwide including the British Museum, the National Museum of Art, Bolivia, the National Museum of Jordan.

Hassans work has been reviewed in books on art, catalogues, newspapers as well as international publications. The most recent book is Unveiling the Visible: Lives & Works of Women Artists of Pakistan & Art in America. Her work was awarded the Biennale Prize at the 8th Cairo International Biennale, 2001.

She has exhibited in over 50 shows at major galleries internationally. She is also an arts curator, administrator as well as an arts activist.

Hassans ongoing multimedia work in progress, The Spiritual Journey series, is inspired by the poetry and music of Sufi masters. It is about growth and spiritual discovery. Mansoora says, My work is about connecting with the spirituality of people and cultures worldwide.

 

At present she is also working on conceptual installation projects in response to the current political climate.

These are titled 911: The Burqa Project, The Afghan Burqa Project: Begging for Peace and The Bound: Unbound Project.

The medium is digital photography and video,
