Seattle Times Review: Humaira Abid
Humaira Abid’s ‘Self Portrait’ speaks bluntly about gender inequality
By Michael Upchurch, in the Seattle Times
“Exquisite craft and barbed wit blend perfectly in the work of Humaira Abid.
Her medium is wood. Her focus is on social inequities. Her feelings, particularly, about the roles that women are expected to play in her native Pakistan are nothing if not forthright. Yet there’s such a surreal ingenuity to her work that it comes across as more mysterious than didactic. Her sculptures have the verve of dark riddles.”
