Sana Saeed

Sana Saeed is a Lahore based practicing artist. She completed her degree in visual arts from NCA in 2017. With a major in painting she also learnt calligraphy and film making to enhance her artistic expression. Growing up in a very strict literary and religious environment, Sana took fine arts as a way of rescue and a platform to speak up her fears and concerns. She started exhibiting her work from a very early age and when she was in her 3rd year at NCA, she did her first group person show in Islamabad with gallery MY ART WORLD. In her final thesis display she has been rewarded with Distinction. In Alhamrah Young Artist Exhibition 2017, she has been rewarded with ‘’excellence award ‘’and is also a member of Artist Residency Program at Shakir Ali Museum. Sana has displayed her work in different galleries of Pakistan, including Canvas Gallery Karachi, Artscene Gallery Karachi, O Art Space Lahore and Zahoor-ul-Ikhlaq Gallery Lahore. She had her first solo show with Taseer Art Gallery Lahore and recently her works were displayed at My Art World in a two person show.

ARTIST STATEMENT
Whenever we leave we always leave a mark behind, it could be a physical mark on any surface or an intangible mark floating in the memory. For me “to live is to leave traces” and my artistic practice revolves around these traces. Marks on walls, doors, stains on clothes, dust particles on different objects, all these surfaces are collectors of time; something that was present once to leave a trace behind. My work focuses on the uncertainty of life, for a moment you are present in the strongest appearance and in the second moment you are not. I talk about the “nothingness” which lies between present and past, a stage where person loses his/her sense of belonging. For me all these thoughts and experiences are traces which are left behind by people to be remembered.
I use various mediums to record the presence of time which is embossed in countless surfaces around us. I never stick to one medium because I believe every memory and trace demands its own medium that’s why I have used mediums like installations, photography, film, writing and painting. My aim is to dig deep inside the surface of my memories and fears to develop a conversation with the audience because, to me, these are not just memories from the past, but the visual records of the people who were once “present”.
