Event Details

‘Daydreams’ is Fahd Burki’s first survey exhibition, bringing together works spanning the last fifteen years of the artist’s practice. Burki’s paintings, drawings and sculptures are inspired by a wide range of influences including architecture, nature and various strands of contemporary popular culture. The selection of works range from his figurative work, through to abstraction, and a selection of commissioned reliefs.

The early figurative works are playfully executed using flat graphic colours, symbols and shapes. Over the years, his practice has evolved through slight variations and reductions resulting in more minimalist abstract compositions consisting of grids, lines and blank spaces; created using subtle materials to make barely visible marks and light washes.

In his more recent works, Burki explores the space between painting and sculpture, through a new series of commissioned reliefs. He reduces the work to its most essential elements, focusing on materiality, with an emphasis on weight and form.
A publication featuring commissioned texts by Murtaza Vali, Saira Ansari and Dawn Ross will accompany the exhibition.
