Fareha Zeba works with acrylic on paper. She has a style that's unique to her. It's style that when you see her work from a distance, you immediately know it's by her. Her figurative work is sometimes controversial, but always dramatic. Her piece Migration-2 is a good example of this.
Much of her works concerns women as a source of power. To her, a woman is an unraveled mystery, an enigma. She represents women as she sees them, but feels that a veil still prevents the full revelation.
In an art community that's often traditional, her work is contemporary. It's a breath of fresh air to see work that makes the viewer think. The viewer may like or dislike, but there's no denying that there's going to be a reaction.
Her art is not just about having a painting that matches a couch in the living room. Although, they're often beautiful. It's about eliciting a conversation. Conversations about the mysteries women and how she expresses that on canvas. As she lets her work take its own course and resolve itself.
