Tales From Nowhere: Paintings by Nadeem Chughtai
Paintings of featureless and isolated figures that evokes feelings of sadness.
The figure is anyone and everyone. It can be male or female. To me, though, it’s mostly male because it’s often me. It represents the human species. Hopefully people relate to it… perhaps it comforts them or even makes them feel sad. Feeling sad is comforting if you realise that you aren’t the only one experiencing those thoughts or feelings. It’s ok to feel happy, angry, upset, confident, unconfident, sure, unsure, scared. We’re all human beings. We wouldn’t be if we didn’t feel those things.
