Rashid, Attia

My work revolves around the basic term nostalgia. Living half my life in the UK, and as I have shifted to Pakistan, I see myself in a new world created of my own. A world of my memory.  A world unrealistic yet made from the realistic. I deconstruct images and then construct them in a new manner, creating a new place, a place of my own. A place that is jumbled up in memory. No-one remembers anything as a whole. Memories come to you in parts and I have looked deeply within this. I create images from my own photography and manipulate them creating a new place. I work in 3D using various materials. As I experience different places, I incorporate them into my work, showing their atmosphere, surroundings, culture and much more.
