Asuf Ishaq | Chasing Rainbows |

Asuf investigates spaces where slippage between emotions, memories, impressions and imagination coexist. The transient and perennial nature of memories and experiences with his ideas balancing between intimacy of place, distant realities to present day experiences. His practice captures the visual impressions, and the rich emotional details of his personal memories, expressed through colour, material gestures, images and sound. Working in layers, creating repetition, seriality and difference, joining the past and present. Asuf presents new installation work exploring the negative characterisation and the subservient role of colour in art. Colour viewed as cosmetic, ornamental, narcotic, distraction and artificial. Asuf studied MA Graphic Design at RCA in 1996 and a Postgraduate diploma in MA Fine Art at BCU.
