“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.

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.

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…
