‘And HE found you lost and guided you’
Kanwal is an Expressionistic Painter. Her Abstracts have developed seriousness with acute sense of colour. The Unseen Realm is a major concern throughout her work where she tries to explore the pulsation of forms.
Her current work is a continuation of the research that she began in 2017, which involves understanding the secrets of the universe in terms of energy, frequency and vibration in visual forms and now she is taking it to the next level by exploring how this concept threads into everyday life and at the heart of understanding the physical world around us.
Her Expressionism allows her to see with her heart that she cannot see with her physical eyes. It enables her to perceive beyond the tangible to extract the infinite out of the finite. Thus it is the emancipation of the heart and an exploration into the unknown areas.
Two of many recommendations from influential people in the art circle around the globe. Laara WilliamSen, International Professional Painter, Art Critic, Art Writer & Former University Professor, Vancouver, CANADA writes: “Kanwal Zafar has truly reached a new and profound level of achievement in her art making. She has dug deeply into her soul and is now creating paintings that resonate with love and light. I feel her tremendous spiritual growth in the depth and truthful feelings within each of these artworks. Also, the city and landscapes that she did while traveling for many years, reflect her confidence and a new and bold authentic art language. It is my pleasure to recommend Kanwal Zafar to you as a valuable International professional painter and one who puts her whole self into the painting!”
Kanwal also has the honour of working beside Laara WilliamSen in an Artist Residency in Rome in 2013.
Will Johnson, Former Art Critic in New York, Renowned Author of many books on Rumi says: “Kanwal your paintings are simply gorgeous, some of the most beautiful, intensely coloured work I’ve ever seen! I love when art can stun us with its beauty, and your paintings are stunning.”
