Artist Statement

(b. 1979)

I have studied miniature painting from National College of Arts, Lahore. With traditional painting the presence of fabric/cloth is obvious in my work. fabric partially veils miniature Indian drawings on paper to the large classical Roman and Greek sculptures. I have introduced the method of deconstructing the traditional artist material, canvas, and the found objects made of fiber, in the most minimal way that is the reverse of weaving. Furthermore, by un-knitting, the garments becomes soft sculptures that reveals body inside and the natural fibres from which they are made of.
