Shahzia Sikander

I got around to visiting the IMMA for the first time in ages over the weekend. The Georgia O’Keefe exhibit
is very small and not her best work and second on the bill is Alex Katz, kitsch, camp, large scale portraits.
Not bad but the highlight for me was Shahzia Sikander.
She specialies in small Indo-Persian miniature painting but her large scale work is really good too, a mixture of current illustration trends & more traditional Pakistani influences. The animation
on display is also fab, a clever motion graphics mash-up of her own illustrations.
