Shahzia Sikander

Contributions by Shahzia Sikander. Text by Faisal Devji.

Free of being prescribed while using a very prescribed and structured form. I like that tension. Miniature painting comes with a set of rules˜It's the materiality, the seductiveness of the surface, the investment, the submission, the hours that are put in˜In the end, they are very meditative and meaningful gestures, like ritual. In this sense, miniature painting is more about subverting modernity than subverting tradition. --Shahzia Sikander (from the interview with Bhabha)
