Seyhr Qayum’s solo show “We’re All Mad Here” opened on Tuesday 3rd 2018 of July at Canvas Gallery.
The title being a reference to Lewis Caroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” offers a commentary on the madness that surrounds the life of Pakistani women.
With female nudes, circuses, reinterpretation of Renaissance art and Islamic architecture, Seyhr creates layers of meanings with the careful arrangement of these symbolic images. Employing a wide range of mixed media in her paintings and installations Seyhr makes a statement about the multi-faced reality of the society’s treatment to women.
The show continues till Tuesday 12th of July 2018.
