As an artist originally from Pakistan and now residing in the vibrant city of Glasgow, Sadia's exhibition encapsulates the awe-inspiring grandeur of old mosques, cathedrals, palaces and more found in the civilisations of the Middle East, Central and South Asia, North Africa, Turkey, the Iberia and more recently the UK and Europe. These remarkable structures, with their intricate doors, windows, balconies, towers, and minarets, embody a sense of mystery and allure, inviting viewers to wander through these intricately carved portals and imagine living in the worlds that might lie beyond.
Sadia's art narrates and intertwines the rich architectural tapestries of these regions with her work bridging cultures to create something unique and beautiful. She often recycles and reimagines materials that have had previous utilitarian functions, reincarnating them in a different form and context.
It is Sadia's aspiration that her artwork act as a portal, inviting viewers to engage with and appreciate diverse artistic traditions and shifting realities and thus to enculturate a journey from the local to the general, from past to present to future and from the physical to the conceptual.
