My work is inspired by my own spiritual experiences as well as my interest in the ancient and esoterics.
Bold enigmatic colours,geometric patterns and nature all carry
within them profund energies ,that are beneficial to both us and our environment.

ABOUT ME

I was born in Manchester UK and have resided in both France and Spain,where I would say my artistic journey really began ,before this I embarked on many different career paths and would occasionally dabble in drawing and painting as a past time.

Now of course art is my life and I couldn't imagine doing anything else.

From quite a young age I have been fascinated by the spiritual and angelic realms,my experiences,astral travels,visions are what I try to convey upon my canvases in a abstract contemporary style.Although personally I feel my work has its own expression .

I have exhibited in many exhibitions here and abroad and have also won numerous awards for my art.
In the year of 2003 I had two very profound spiritual experiences which compelled me to take my art to another level , I also knew that my art would have some sort of significance and impact upon the viewer wether on a spiritual level or energetically.Either way,I was strongly guided to get my work out and I did just that.

After a series of synchronicities and Divinely guidance I was lead to my next destination,the north of Spain, just 1 year later,

I was very fortunate and brave enough without much experience ,to open a gallery and studio space in a small town called Sant Feliu de Guixols just outside of Girona Spain,.

Everything,eventually, came together quite effortlessly ,in a town where nothing was available to rent and where senior neighbours frowned at the very idea of yet another foreigner setting up business.
I had the most wonderful two years here.Integrating with locals,artists and clients from so many different cultures and countries.A truly magical and unforgettable experience.

Unfortunately,due to unforeseen circumstances  and ill health ,I had to return to the UK, but I hope one day to do the same again.
May my work fill your hearts and spirits with inspiration and joy.
With love.
Uma.

BIOGRAPHY

I have been painting for almost 21 yrs,without any real formal training in Art ,except for an O level at the age of 16 years old ,afterwich,  I went on to dabble a little in Art and Photography for a year ,at a college in Bounds Green London

At this point I didn't take art seriously and went on to pursue many other careers as well as fashion modelling.

It wasn't until after the birth of my son in 2001 that my spirit was drawn to painting and I haven't stopped since.

EXPERTISE

With her colour and official language, which make her force to reach balance, Uma Aslam reconciles emotion and reason in a coloured palette with a beautiful brilliance.
By looking for and by discovering, she moves the figurative into the abstract and vice versa, she looks for borders and then she denies them.
Uma wants to share this lofty experience with us. To look and to absorb her art give us feeling to be all right.
Her pictures here exposed, are not reality’s imitations. They represent a world in itself just like a visual recording of interaction between chance and control.
Therefore, that “ one thing” that suggests the next thing, the further one and so on up to reach a sort of internal expressive logics.

Her art wonders us and determines our point in space. Then there are emotion and desire which automatically turn into need of seeing beyond.

Uma has pursued with an artistic and mathematics wisdom forms both kind and strongly shaped which soak of meditations her pictures.

For her rules tailored for light and her respect for colour, the Artist has an important role in pictures’ composition and care which really inspire.

Uma’s pictures kindly call their spectators.
It is about whispered abstractions, sometimes without any description but they attract to see how elegant syllables in poetries painted with sensitivity.

She does not try to shock or to glamour with refined movements, nor to deceive with flowers fascination. Varnish reaches her canvas as a thick fog of colours to play at the perky air.

An eventual inaccuracy of borders teases incertitude, but breathing colours which seem to be stained again reward our attention again and again.

Her work describes wide horizons, great skies, bodies of water and land forms. She collects an infinite range of inspired scenes and release s them on her canvas in simple and subtle renderings which rapidly freeze as time passes and leave a pictorial recording of a poetic process.

Her scenes are horizons without any place where spectator can psychologically go beyond. With fluid lines and colours which slowly changes, she evokes meditative sighs. Her way of being natural is soft and sophisticated. She hence summarises notions of colour in reality. She suggests optimism through capturing what is beautiful in nature.

With light and shadow, she deepens and transmits feeling of three-dimensionality.

In some of her pictures, with fractal geometry, she freely shakes space for light, by bringing to rythms and forms those dimensions as they had casually been provided…

Objects of visual image become signs, spiritual concepts, and have a poetically symbolic meaning, something to communicate and to tell…
