CATALOGUE NOTES
Born in 1937 in Aligarh, India, Zarina Hashmi studied Mathematics before she tried her hand at printmaking when she visited Rajasthan in the 1960s. Hashmi went on to study intaglio in Paris and wood block printing Tokyo. Her works are known for her use of lines on handmade paper and are often used to depict political borders and memories of violence from partition. Her interest in mathematics and architecture can be seen in her understanding of structures. Works in intaglio, woodblock, lithography and silkscreen seem to explore themes of displacement, home and borders. Edition 4/5
