Art as an escape medium

Queen’s Ineffable World Exhibition will display the work of UK based artist Syeda Eshrat Nasim Queen. She was born in Sylhet, Bangladesh and has worked to make herself into a well-known singer, photographer, news presenter, and perhaps the most pertinent to this exhibition – a painter, within the UK. Queen has already had her work displayed in two solo exhibitions, the one here at Oxford House will be her third.

Queen has overcome many negative things within her life, translating her negative feelings into positivity through the medium of art. She first started painting with handmade brushes and colours and hopes that her art can show and influence people to use art as an escape medium.

One of her main hopes as an artist is to influence people to think positively even if they are based in negative situations and recycle the pain into happiness. As well as this, Queen also aims to show equality between people through the inner world of ourselves in her paintings.

Oxford House is extremely excited that Queen has chosen to exhibit her work in our gallery as we are supportive of local artists, and echo the messages she is trying to portray with her art.

The exhibition will be extremely lively and full of colour and is definitely one we recommend coming and seeing as the art is for everyone, with no specific target audience.

The exhibition will open with a private view event which will have complementary food, drinks and live music. This will take place on the 20th of January from 6.00pm – 9.30pm. The exhibition will also repeat daily until the 31st of January and is free entry.

Gallery Opening Times:
Monday to Friday: 9am to 10pm
Weekend: 10am to 2pm
