For new show Larger Than Life, Pakistan-based artist Aisha Khalid has produced a stunning collection of miniature paintings around sociopolitical themes of female oppression, global politics and cultural stereotyping. Embroidery is a recurring theme in Khalid’s work, and she will experiment with sewing the bricks on one of the Whitworth Art Gallery’s double-height walls with a site-specific project of repeating pattern of roses – a reflection on life and spirituality.
