This print depicts a scene from my last visit to my childhood home in Karachi, Pakistan. Although my house has remained the same from the inside, its surroundings have transformed. I created this print to capture the tension between the static interior and the changing exterior. I am anticipating the construction sites across the area will have caved in closer upon my next return. Through monotype printing I dissect the scene into shapes that represent different components of a memory and rearrange those components, enhancing the ones that are most meaningful to me.
