It's been quite a while since my last journal post but rest assured DeviantART has and always will be my first foray into the wonderful world of online art communities! I've been keeping my gallery here up-to-date but if I haven't gotten around to replying to your wonderful comments and faves on my work I'm very sorry and know they are much appreciated! 

So, a few updates - I am currently preparing for my first solo exhibition, which will hopefully take place the first week of this July! Since finishing up grad school in the UK last year, I've been based back in my home city of Istanbul, Turkey, as a freelance arts/film correspondent and culture critic for a couple of UK and International art magazines. Luckily this has given me the time and space to get back to working on large scale canvas pieces, too, hence the long time lapses between Unconsoled and Emergence as opposed to what came previous. I've also been trying out new materials like texture paste, thread, card and sponge applied directly on canvas in works like Emergence, which has been fruitful at best and insanely frustrating/slow going at worst! The added dimension is a bonus when it works, though, so I'll be getting back to it occasionally, but as my longtime followers will have sussed out, I love me some classic acrylic-on-canvas surrealism too. 

But back to my promised exhibition; the details haven't been finalised yet, but I am hoping to keep it on 12-15 of my strongest traditional large canvas pieces, and I'm currently in the process of getting some promo and publicity catching on. Please give my newly revamped artist's page on Facebook a like and share if you have a moment! Facebook Artists' Page: Sarah Jilani

Thank you!

I went through Your gallery and I've seen some really good art. You have apparent progress and thought provoking concepts. Gentle and sensitive approach to palette and tones. Surreals are stunning, contemplative art serve it's name etc. 
I wish all the best and keep Your great work up!
