Hina Khan/Roots

My work has multilayers and is the constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas and express my own ideologies through symbolism. My recent solo show “Visible n Invisible” is all about the human hustle and bustle on the planet. My work is a constant search for peace that doesn’t exist anymore. I fabricate things that constantly evoke the deep emptiness / sorrow about the surroundings. Having done my BFA (Bachelor in Fine Arts) from F. G Degree College, I have completed my MFA (Masters in Fine Arts) from FJWU (Fatima Jinnah Women University), Pakistan in 2003, with Miniature Painting as my Majors. I built up my visual vocabulary through the traditional miniature painting. In 2018 I completed an artist’s residency in Firestation Studios Dublin and had a solo show in Ballina Arts Centre County Mayo. In 2019 I created an art installation for Culture Night in TUD Grangegorman and went on to be artist in residence in West Cork Arts Centre in Skibbereen. In 2020 I have a solo show in Arthouse Stradbally County Laois and am working towards a solo show at LHQ in Cork for September. Human perception can present things very sensitively and for me Art is not just an activity, it is a passion. It is a medium that I used as an activist. I use it to describe my feelings, my pain. I have used art as a medium to articulate myself since I have faith that art has the power to prevail over the differences between religion, culture, language and race. It has the power to bring harmony to culture and to craft peace in our only inhabitable planet.
