Abstract Magazine International | What There is of Earth by Heikki Huotari
Abstract seeks fine art in all forms that engages with both the crises and joys of our shared human condition. We seek art that engages the edge of now; we seek to explore a future forward zeitgeist with a respect for the gifts of the past. We are looking for both established and emerging artists across a broad range of genres. Our criterion is quality.

Art: Silence by Amna Urooj, @art.amna

In the artist’s words:

My name is Amna Urooj. I am from Lahore, Pakistan, where I am currently doing an MFA (Hons) in Visual Arts from the University of Punjab in Lahore. My work has been exhibited and featured nationally and internationally. I usually work with mix media, acrylic and oil on canvas. Being obsessed with nature, colors and dots, the main emphasis of my work is “Meditation”, focusing on colors and dots as a practice of visual meditation. The basic concept of the work is to seek healing and comfort and escape from anxiety. For me, the process of doing the work, the repetition of the dots, distracts my thoughts in a practice of visual meditation.
