Nadira Husains (b.1980 Paris, France) work sways between different sets of issues regarding self- reflection, reality and fiction, history and presence, canonized norms and alternative drafts. Her mainly large-format works contrast European and Eastern imagery, combining motifs that allude
to Indian miniatures (she has both French and Indian roots) with comic-like figures. She samples decorative, abstract-geometrical patterns and inspired by feminist theory, paints portraits of women whose androgynous looks confound conventional representations of gender. Her pictorial spaces also have a decidedly non-hierarchical structure, avoiding perspectives that distinguish between foreground and background, high and low cultural motifs, autonomous and decorative elements, are also treated equally.
