Zara Khan’s exhibition titled Dilemmas recently unveiled at ARTCITI Gallery, Karachi.
Her work displays many forms of figurative symbolism with intense expression. Her work comes across as embellished, abstraction of forced deconstruction, and a pure rejection of the classical. By contesting the division between the realm of memory and the realm of experience, she creates intense personal moments that are masterfully created by means of rules and omissions, acceptance and refusal. Her work diverts the viewer to the hidden meaning that is not apparent in the first glance. It is reference with interpretation that is sometimes projected as versatile. The clear-cut picture of the artwork is sometimes embossed with the perception of the viewer, thereby presenting a unique outlook.
