Enter the Jadis gallery and you have entered
an entirely different world .still life pictures of clothes, textiles, suitcases
and bags, hospital attire and antique furniture greet you from remarkably true
to life canvases. Suddenly you realise that despite the close attention to
detail and the incredibly realistic feel of the pictures, the medium is
actually simple colour pencils. It is almost impossible to imagine that
such a fantastic effect can be created by the use of such simple tools.
the exhibiting artists is Minoo Emami Alagha. An interesting aspectof their work
is fascination with clothes and suitcases. Whether it is bags packed for a trip
or clothes pouring out of an open suitcase, or crumpled coats hanging on the
walls , there are several pictures with the accent on clothes .
Another aspect worthy of mention is the
manner in wich the colour pencils have been used so that the softness and
luxurious feel of textures like silk and velvet can almost be felt.
