| Between Worlds of Talha Rathore|
Using the ancient Pakistani tradition of miniature painting in which
she was formally trained, Rathore creates works of art that address difficult
questions of identity, dichotomy and diaspora with simple elegance.
To conflate the meticulous technique of a revered artistic practice with the
New York City subway map a disposable, mass-produced item regularly torn apart and
trampled seems an act of heresy.
Yet in the skillful hands of the artist,
this merging of disparate elements produces a delicate equilibrium.
Rathore's solo exhibition opens today at the Bose Pacia Modern gallery.
