Notes for an Exhibition of paintings by Faouzia and Michael Lane
Ilkhom Theatre, Tashkent
4-31 May 2017
Faouzia and Michael Barry Lane are a husband and wife team of two British artists living and working in Tashkent, Paris and Andalucia. They have lived in a restored house in a traditional neighbourhood of Tashkent since shortly after Independence. The majority of the paintings in the exhibition are collaborations, where Faouzia provides the initial inspiration and executes the preliminary drawing, which is then elaborated on and colored in oils by Michael. All decisions on the choice of motifs, colours and designs are discussed and decided on together. A personal exhibition of family Lane paintings was held in the Residence of the British Ambassador from 2014 to 2015. (more…)
On April 12th at 17:30, at the Ilkhom Theatre we will showcase a new exhibition project entitled “SECOND LIFE”
The author of the project, Naufal Kattabayev says: “To create floral compositions, objects, and even elements of interior design – our florists personally prepare and use natural materials. We utilize the gifts of nature, starting from vines and dried flowers and ending with metal and plastic.
The main objective of the exhibition is to increase the prestige of the florist-designer profession in Uzbekistan.
Our job includes fostering a respectful attitude towards flowers and natural materials, and an attempt to bring this art form in Uzbekistan to an international level. (more…)
