From 'The Bird and the Flying Fish.'
An Excerpt from the statement :
Imagine, being somewhere and seeing, listening, feeling
And experiencing the entirety of the place,
From every single viewpoint possible. All at once.
The unseen reality. The cosmic flow of all things.
'The Bird and the Flying Fish' is an investigation of past experiences, from conversations with people to interactions with nature, through observed and imagined vantage points. The emotive experience of colour and the effect of perspectives on altering human perceptions. The infinite possibilities of different standpoints and divergent interpretations. An observation of how we see (or don’t see) things.
With each painting, I am in a new place. My consciousness constantly moving. The forms changing, uniting and the perspectives overlapping. From deep sea to high air, transforming with momentum and time; like a bird flying through the atmospheric energies and weather patterns, or a flying fish breaking the surface of the water and gliding into the air.
Based in: Chicago
Aishath Huda is a visual artist from the Maldives. She investigates the shared experiences of consciousness, embodiment and coexistence in nature. She combines observed and imagined perspectives to create shifts in perceptions in her work that invites viewers to reimagine their relationship with the rest of nature. Her research aims to find ways to transition from a human-centered worldview into a more expansive sense of “we”. Huda’s conceptually layered marks reference ecological processes (crevasses forming, shifts in ocean currents, rock formations, and dying corals.) She is currently interested in exploring water as a conscious medium.
Huda is currently an M.F.A Art 2023 candidate at the University of Illinois at Chicago. After receiving a BFA in 2016 from China Academy of Art, Hangzhou, she has worked as a teaching artist at the Maldives National University. In 2019, she had a solo exhibition at the National Art Gallery of Maldives, titled 'The Bird and the Flying Fish.'
Her work has been shown nationally and internationally including in Barcelona, Sardinia, Zanzibar, Thimphu, Paro, New Delhi, Beijing, Hangzhou, Xi'an and Shanghai.
