Catalogue Note

Zarina, who was born in 1937, was a witness to the traumas of Partition. Her family’s upheaval during Partition raised questions about personal and communal loss and her association with certain places and memories. Zarina is known for her astute use of minimalism to represent the complexity of her main artistic concerns - displacement and belonging.

The artist has led a largely nomadic existence, living in New Delhi; Bangkok - where she learned about Buddhism, and Japan, where she studied printmaking before eventually settling in New York.

Throughout her artistic career, she has shown versatility with a wide range of mediums. Primarily a print maker, her mature works such as this lot, present interventions on paper. She creates a surface that invites the viewer for intimate contemplation.                   

Her unique and carefully considered approach has gained her international recognition. In 2012 she was honoured with a retrospective at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles which then traveled to The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and The Art Institute of Chicago.
