Batool Showghi

Book Art and Mixed Media

Batool Showghi’s multidisciplinary approach to the artists’ book and her mixed media work involve photography, illustration, painting and textiles. All of which are employed to explore themes of cultural heritage, memory, identity and loss in very personal ways. Her work as an artist is concerned with the experience of women and the way in which this experience relates to cultural and religious boundaries as well as reflecting on the theme of turbulence, immigration, disintegration of the family and the experience of displacement.
In recent projects and artist’s books Batool uses textile pieces on canvas and paper and the use of a sewing machine as a drawing tool to create her imagery.
