â€œI gather elements through my emotional experiences then transform them into the art forms which could incorporate anything and everything thatâ€™s around me.â€ - Abu Jafar
Spring 2006 Jafar has created some very unusual installation form of sculpture including â€œWonder Natureâ€ at Sir Hillier Gardens 2006, â€œThe Wonder Burghleyâ€ at the Burghley Sculpture Garden 2007, â€œOn My Wayâ€ at the Botanic Garden University of Leicester 2008 and Falling Leaves / Wonder Nature at GSK 2009. These projects were a site-specific Installation form of sculpture containing 5-7 and 12 structures. The presentation combines paintings, drawings, blown glass, fused glass and pure interaction with its natural surroundings. Over the time, the sculpture has evolved with additional 26 structures to a current project ABU JAFAR - HOPE is going to exhibit through out this summer at the Monnow Valley Sculpture garden, Herefordshire and Beam Sculpture Park, Wakefield. The latest extensions have added some new dimension to the installation. Wonder through the windows and look beyonLetchworth
