About The Work
“Stemming from my interest in the myriad contradictions that inform human behaviour, the path, or ‘Siraat’, has come to inform some of my recent work. Following this notion of the path, I take reference from the everyday 'Maps' that we see around us, both the physical markings and the non-physical realm of the mind.
"My laborious rendering of countless dots coming together as units to form an idea on surface is based on the ‘Nuqta’ or dot symbolizing infinity. The dots join to form a line, which becomes a single, self-perpetuating medium of self- realization."
Wardha Shabbir is a miniature painter who graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the prestigious National College of Art, Lahore, in 2011.
Taking forward the technique of traditional miniature painting, influenced by gardens from her surroundings, and the ones depicted in historic manuscripts, the linear organic compositions in her work respond to her contemporary concern as an artist: to invoke a thought-provoking process of demystification.
