NADIA KHAWAJA / In search of me
May 6 – June 30, 2013

We are pleased to announce represented artist, Nadia Khawaja's third solo exhibition at Grey Noise, Dubai, opening May 6, 2013.

In search of me will showcase new works that are evident to, and further explore, the transcendental nature of her artistic practice.

Laced with poetic and symbolic structures, Khawaja’s work presents a personal yet universal language. She is inspired by primal elements, movements and rhythms, which are playfully woven into complex forms, structures and fields. The abstract form of these works alludes to the conflicting and complementary relationships between fragment/whole, separation/integration, simplicity/complexity, presence/timelessness, perception/ consciousness and human/universe. Nadia Khawaja works primarily with the medium of drawing, and is recently shaping her concepts through photography, text and neon.


Nadia Khawaja graduated from the National College of Arts, Lahore with a distinction in printmaking in 2001. She was an exchange student for a year at the Ecole d’Art d’Aix-en-Provence, France, where she explored diverse mediums such as photography, photo montage, collage, video, screen-printing and poetic texts. She has continued to write and draw over the years, as well as exploring classical music and dance since 2004.
