Oil painting on canvas
Working Outside by Mariam Qureshi is an oil painting that captures the artist's experience of working as a conservationist/park ranger in Alberta. The painting is an abstract expression of her feelings about working with the elements and nature. Qureshi conveys a sense of pleasure and existential connection in the painting, showing how working can be part of a larger picture than just earning an income. The dark section of the canvas with $-shaped wiggles represents the artist's detachment from the material world and her growing passion for the environment. This painting is a beautiful and moving expression of the artist's experience, and it would make a stunning addition to any home or office.
