About

I am an artist, born and raised in Pakistan. Currently based in London after being in Chicago for the past couple of years. I am drawn to structure, systems, looking into and upwards at things, objects, or landscapes. The relationship between the structure of system and the point at which it collapses in the process is highly important to me. The starting point for my work is either intuitive, or it begins with a scientific, or logical inquiry, and goes through many investigational processes, eventually unfolding into something that informs ways of seeing and perceiving.

The works are about pushing a photograph in a created structured system up to a brink where it breaks and give elements to work with. At times the elements are enough but occasionally they need to be intervened with in order for them to be resolved. I believe I am trying to understand photography in the context of taking a photograph in 2016 with still being in touch with Artists like Agnes Martin, Theo Van Doesburg and mathematician Bénoit Mandelbrot. These artists works and particularly their  writings inform my practice in a very spiritual way though calling it that seems limiting. They are underlying interests in perception, technology, neuroscience, autism and systems in all the series and books I have made so far…
