Work Description

Form Studies is a series of watercolour drawings that are sketches and proposals for potential sculptures, three-dimensional projects or manifestations. In these floating forms inspired by the everyday iconography of her home city of Dhaka in Bangladesh,  Ayesha records street corners and urban architectural facets such as edges, facades, staircases and wall surfaces.
