Aisha Khalid's Biography
Her work is an embodiment of the 70s adage: the personal is the political. Her paintings belie contentious issues on gender and patriarchy, power structures, and the clausterophobia and inertia stemming from the domestic terrain. Her attire and the symbolism it begets is not an abstract concept but an every day reality. One of her paintings dipicts a burqa clas woman, khalid embarked upon this series using the burqa as her LEITMOTTIF in 2000, yet the imagery crystalized post 9/11 as "the burqa, which she used to address complex negotiations between the self and society, became a global icon signifying women"s bodies to legitimize the invasion of Afghanistan in the name of "liberation".
