From the press release: "Trained in the traditional art of miniature painting in her native Pakistan, Schahbaz re-examines the centuries-old art form, from the female perspective of a South-Asian contemporary artist living in New York. Often using herself as the protagonist of dreamlike narratives, Schahbaz presents a series of works on paper that merge current iconography and traditional techniques."
