Embodied Fragmentation II

This is an ongoing series of paintings on plexiglass that explores the perpetual nature of the journey from fragmentation to alignment of the self through a feminist lens. Inspired by my Pakistani upbringing, childhood memories of home, collage, mythology and spirituality, this series seeks to capture in essence and in experience, the internal push and pull that is reclaiming identity.
