"Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
If I could round up today's artist's landscapes in just a few words, I'd iterate, "nature and the sum of all its intricacies."
It's through artist Tamkeen Fatima's details and close observation skills (oftentimes going hand-in-hand) that these scenes shine. For this first landscape, it's the reflection of sun on snow; the slight pink, orange, and yellow tones lead our eyes down the center of this terrain towards the sun, pulling us in, seemingly granting us first-person witness upon an inspiring scene.
In this piece, the juxtaposition of the trees complement one another, creating balance: first veering right, then going left, and then finally spreading around as we reach the back of the scene, creating a sense of depth and vastness. This piece feels open, soul-embracing.
Not only does Fatima create landscapes, but she also does henna art, creating these convoluted, beautiful designs below. I absolutely love how complicated these designs seem; the left reminds me of floral arrangements, and the finger designs on the right remind me of lattice flower beds.
Thank you Tamkeen Fatima for allowing me to feature your work, I look forward to your future creations!
