Samina Islam (Karachi, Pakistan)
in residence at MAWA June 2-30, 2018
Artist Talk Wednesday, June 27, 7pm at MAWA
Samina Islam is a mixed-media artist of mixed heritage (she has a Pakistani father and Dutch mother). She incorporates needlework on top of her images, which are usually printed on canvas, experimenting with diverse visual media to achieve the effect she is looking for. She is intrigued by people’s traditions and surroundings, and her process is spontaneous and intuitive. Inspired by painting while on a residency in Japan, Islam will be painting what she encounters in Winnipeg, embellishing these works with embroidery, glass beads and sequins. She will document her time here through photography and video.
