How could you grow to love him?
He took you from flowers to kingdom
Where not a single living thing can grow
I always thought the words, and then, were a prelude to something wonderful.
The bones of my spine,
The ground under my feet
Even the gods of paradise must know light of loneliness.
Mariam did her BFA from Indus Valley School of Art, Karachi, Pakistan and did her MFA from Central Sain Martins, London U.K. Working in the medium of tapestries, drawings and installations, she creates artworks that are a physical manifestation of our globalized sensibilities. She has developed an original approach, incorporating elements of popular culture and theory in dialogue while deconstructing the historical narrative of love in imagery. Her primary materials are thread, fabric and found imagery.
