Samina Quraeshi’s mixed-media compositions, inspired by the Sufi traditions of the Indus Valley, draw on the multilayered symbolic and visual resources of the cultural, religious, and historical mixing that characterizes South Asia. Exquisite Islamic calligraphy, miniature paintings, the patterns of traditional tiles and architecture, photographs of Pakistani people and places, and the artist’s own drawings, writings, and technical manipulations of these various media combine to communicate a sensory experience of the living tradition of Sufism. Her work can thus be seen not only as the unique expression of an individual artist, but also as a cultural mediation that takes place within an identifiable framework of visual references drawn from her Pakistani homeland.
