Huma Bhabha is best known for assembling tactile materials like clay, wire, cork, and scraps of construction into dark, dense sculptures full of cultural references.
Ever shifting between figuration and abstraction, Bhaba’s work deals with what she describes as ‘eternal concerns’ found across all cultures: war, colonialism, and memories of home. In her works on paper, she creates atmospheric portraits, often blending animal and human features.
Huma Bhabha, born in Karachi, Pakistan in 1962, lives and works in Poughkeepsie, New York. She has been collaborating with BORCH Gallery & Editions since 2007.
