Statement

TALPUR

During the time of British invasion in Sindh, much resistance was shown and exercised especially by Talpurs of Hyderabad, But the resistance was soon turned into acceptance as British gradually took over.
My work is about making narrative out of those historical narratives of resistance and acceptance in terms of ideology, life style and government, I intend to draw the attention of the viewers towards flipping the sides and roles of a colonizer and colonized. The paintings that I create is a fictional account on the relationship of Colonizer (British) and Colonized (Talpurs) through which I create different narratives and stories, those are open to multiple interpretation of viewers.
