Finally, The Haunted Lotus by Sydney-based Hazara artist Khadim Ali. I first encountered his work in the exhibition (the heart that has no love/pain/generosity is not a heart) curated by Haema Sivanesan at UTS Gallery

Artist talk at Sydney Writers Festival

Ali grew up as a refugee in Pakistan and trained in classical miniature painting in Lahore and in mural painting in Tehran. His family is from Bamiyan where the 6th century Buddhas were destroyed by the Taliban in 2001.

The Haunted Lotus installation at AGNSW includes video (showing process work), painting, and a number of rugs depicting demons sourced from the Shanameh.

I am trying to sketch a little bit in galleries which helps to remember the works, but certainly not illustrate them at this stage…
