Ruminations & Reflections

October 11–November 7, 2019
FIAF Montclair

FIAF presents Ruminations & Reflections, an exhibition of stunning oil paintings by Pakistan-born New Jersey-based artist Anjum Saeed.

The paintings in this exhibition capture her ruminations on the temporal and the eternal world, and the winding journey her life took as she discovered inspiration in poetry, literature, and influential thinkers like spiritual master Jalaluddin Rumi.

“My passion for painting is unwavering… ” says Ms. Saeed, “after three decades away from my art, a primal surge of emotion burst forth into a waterfall of vibrant color. These painting are in essence, my own reflections on artifacts my mind has collected throughout my life. It is my wish that viewers can drive their own interpretations, and resolve the conflicts and aspirations that affect their own path. Mine is a message of compassion, persistence, and the awareness of a higher power.”

Opening Reception
Friday, October 11, from 6-7pm
