Artist archives— Zohra Rahman// Born in Lahore, Pakistan, Zohra Rahman discovered the intricacies of jewellery design at London’s Central St. Martin’s before returning to her hometown for the launch of her eponymous label in 2014. 
Playful and thought-inspiring, Zohra’s designs reflect her belief in the transcendent potential of the ordinary and everyday. Meticulously handcrafted at the brand’s Lahore studio and distinguished by a keen attention to detail, her collections blend a clean, purist design aesthetic with traditional craftsmanship and artisanal jewellery making techniques.

the visual element of texture defines the surface quality of an artwork - the roughness or smoothness of the material from which it is made.

We experience texture in two ways: optically (through sight) and physically (through touch). Optical Texture: An artist may use his/her skilful painting technique to create the illusion of texture. For example, in the detail from a traditional Dutch still life above you can see remarkable verisimilitude (the appearance of being real) in the painted insects and drops of moisture on the silky surface of the flower petals.

Physical Texture: An artist may paint with expressive brushstrokes whose texture conveys the physical and emotional energy of both the artist and his/her subject. They may also use the natural texture of their materials to suggest their own unique qualities such as the grain of wood, the grittiness of sand, the flaking of rust, the coarseness of cloth and the smear of paint.

Ephemeral Texture: This is a third category of textures whose fleeting forms are subject to change like clouds, smoke, flames, bubbles and liquids.

Jami ul-Alfar mosque in Sri Lanka// Architecture and construction aesthetic play a huge role in how we feel about a place, the energy it radiates and the social milieu that is formed around it. We often overlook architecture being a crucial aspect of our everyday lives. What makes a place that place? How do we associate visuals of a certain city or town in our minds? The most natural answer will be the architectural landscape, the natural and manmade geography. How do you feel about architecture? 📷 via @theculturegully via tumblr
