A Dream Within a Dream
Artist: Aatika Fatima
Medium: Gouache on Wasli
Scale: W14.7 x H17.7 inches
A practicing artist living in the United Kingdom, Aatika brings a contemporary twist to traditional miniatures, exploring themes of voyeurism and issues such as privacy. Using gouache on wasli, the work acts as a window into situations where people are unaware that they are being watched.
The architecture and perspective of the spaces are inspired by her own visits and her take on human behaviour that varies across the areas she explores, signifying that socio-economic background and culture influence how people live in the permanence of their homes.
