Madiha’s work is constructed from materials such as polymer clay, seedbeads, glitter, and more. Breaking away from tradition, these contemporary iterations of geometric design use material to evoke an air of playfulness and whimsy. Her use of bright colors and craft materials are not just a nod to the fluidity and timelessness of these designs, they are pure and simple fun. Madiha’s work is both serious and joyous, born from tradition but reliant on contemporaneity. As if peeking through a latticed screen, these intricate tessellations become a partially-revealed, partially-obscured window to the infinite–bridging past, present, and future.
