About Nadia Khan
Nadia Khan is inspired by her own experiences as a bi-racial artist (American and Bangladeshi), covering topics such as race, motherhood, womanhood, and intimacy in her work. Figures are often integrated with flora and fauna. Khan explores different mediums in her practice- painting, collage making, sculpture and embroidery- but her recent aim is to showcase techniques and mediums that are often considered “crafty” or not looked at as “fine art.” She wishes to pay homage to the hardworking women who are overlooked for their skills in making amazing textile art.
Taking in consideration of all of that, We Meet Again, four wood block relief prints printed on linen, dives into a conversation about womanhood, life and death and roads which were not taken. These works were inspired by two decisions of necessity and loss after the artist had an abortion. The works talk about the life cycle which one must take in life, and this is represented by the poppies which represent eternal sleep.
