From afar Language II looks like a serene abstract image. Upon a closer inspection, however, one realizes that the work is in fact created by an extensive archive of images of text from signboards, posters, advertisement, banners, wall chalking etc. – all textual imagery that was found in a given year in the city of Lahore. Each such micro image is saturated with information – not just in the literal message but also through their laden history. This explosion of intensity comes together to create a beautiful poetic image and – in that – challenges and celebrates the very stance behind the aesthetics of an abstract, non-objective painting.
