Aisha’s work brings together the disciplines of faith and science through the form of contemporary, conceptual art. Art and science, faith and science, have been inter-linked for centuries, yet many people feel that there is a myth about their unity. For Aisha, this unity exists, as there is an element of spirituality in each of these three disciplines, which is the essence of her work.
The narrative of Aisha’s paintings unfold in a series of layers. Before she even starts to put paint onto canvas she has already worked through preparatory layers, the most important of which is to develop the initial source of inspiration – her research for every series of work she embarks on. As this research provides layers of discovery and understanding, so the painting itself is built up in a series of layers, with revelations expressed through the varied realisation of colours, processes and techniques in each successive layer. From the initial source of inspiration to the final layer of paint on the canvas Aisha’s work reflects her very spiritual and philosophical nature.
The expansion of colour, which is determined by the many tonalities, span across every canvas. Her paintings exude colour, calmness, serenity and harmony, all of which reflect a contemplative form. She applies painterly techniques which are paramount to the picture plain that she creates.
