Her art Read more...is characterized by strong and expressive lines, it’s figurative, richly detailed and dynamic considering the use of colors and patterns. Gowara Minsa’s art shows us strange creatures who find themselves in an odd habitat where they explore the world around them, crying, laughing or making different statements. Improvisation is crucial to her work —the artworks are not planned but created spontaneously. In this way her art can be viewed as a visual stream of consciousness where words, motifs, stories and associations can flow freely. Her art invites the audience’s associations and fantasies to mix with this stream of consiousness.
