Asma is a Broken Hill based artist working mainly in the mediums of drawing and printmaking.
Her work approaches a meeting point between geography and metaphysics, with a view of synthesising multiple viewpoints. Recently she has been exploring the writings of Ibn al-'Arabi and his discussion of an intermediate zone, accessed through an imaginal faculty 'the eye (intellect) of the heart', a perception known to traditional societies.
Asma has a background in literature(BA), Fine art, Art and Environment (Masters), Sufism and Martial arts. She has participated in many group shows and a number of solo shows. Her work is held in private and one public collection.
This work was supported by funding from Create NSW.
