Light Gallery, 2006, First edition, 31 pp., 6" X 8 1/2", Stapled wraps
Catalogue of Ali Kazim's solo exhibition at lightgallery in 2006. Using the practice of South Asian miniature painting as his artistic base, Ali Kazim has fashioned a distinctive technique, rigorouly technical yet intuitively fluid. In these paintings, the artist paints mostly men, shown usually naked form the waist up. To Eddie Chamber, one of the contributors of the catalogue, Kazim's figures are carriers of 'private myths'. Includes an artist biography.
