A solo show by the artist Feica was recently a treat for the art lovers at Artchowk Gallery in Karachi.
Feica’s political satire has surfaced on print for the last many years focusing on different intricacies of life. In this exhibition he reflects his views on human relations, believing in love that conquers all.
Using charcoal and acrylic on paper, his work can be divided into two; one focusing on human relationships and the other on political irony. By using titles such as “Don’t worry”, “The Robot” and “Science my Foot”, he addresses many social issues that prevail in our society. He also throws light on the dilemma of Education, Freedom of Press and Justice and makes a mockery of it through his cartoons. The cartoons that Feica pens are explicit in their own message; glaring for clarity and shouting for attention.
The other sketches are human forms that are shown in an embrace suggesting love. His interpretation of love comes across as a strong physical expression that suggests closeness and bonding. The concept of loneliness and relationship are juxtaposed in his work. The work titled as “Lost and Found” is an interesting show of emotions that reaches its zenith once united. Similarly, “Entangled” could be viewed as in total unison or total chaos, depending on the viewer’s narrative.
