Spring 2013: With all her paintings done spontaneously, this work of art captures spring within a canvas. Her easel set up overlooking a belt of beautiful trees in F-9 park, Islamabad, Asma says what makes this painting special is the feeling it captures — the freshness and vibrancy of spring.
Hareem’s Walk: Asma’s genius is in her ability to capture the subtlety of atmosphere and mood, to elevate the ordinary to the ethereal. In Hareem’s Walk, she has done more than just capture a scene from a friend’s trek through a Chiang Mai forest. As one gushing fan puts it: “This is a very real scene but it could very well be be Alice trekking through Wonderland. I want to follow Hareem down the path and deep into this painting.”
Pathways: On one of her regular walks across Islamabad, Asma came across this neglected pathway, partially guarded by the remnants of a barbed wire. She set out to capture the pathway on canvas, which to her was symbolic of something old and forgotten, something which is often taken for granted.
