Visual expression is a private solace. My work is stemmed in a psychic wandering of my roots, a need for connection with the present and emerging questions. I am interested in how the Arabic script can be molded into form and how writing can be enmeshed with visual representations. What I write in Urdu is contexutal and contemporary but is derived from a historical form of Eastern calligraphy. The 99 names of Allah - and what they mean. The world we live in and what getting closer means as class lines widen. How emotions turn such as love to hatred. Channeling anger. The mystery of symbols. The age-old tension of East and West. These are some of the themes that compel me.
