The World is experiencing a moment of stand-still during the events of Covid-19 pandemic. Surely it is affecting each one of us in many different ways. To some this means fear and uncertainty about the future, economic difficulties, to others – inspiration and time to create. This period brings ideas into surface, raises questions and debates about our healthcare and economic systems, ecological, political and social issues.
This is a series of posts featuring creative expressions made during Covid-19 pandemic, or previous works that are particularly relevant during these times of change.
Today we are sharing artworks by Robella Ahmad, based in Lahore, Pakistan, who is a digital artist and a curator by profession, a textile designer by degree. She has assisted in numerous art shows and residencies. Robella is the founder of E-Exhibitions which is an online platform for artists around the world to exhibit their work.
Robella’s works are inspired by Greek myths which relate to the male dominance that women endure in relationships even in contemporary times. This series refers to symbolism of flowers in Greek mythology.
