A PERMISSION TO WALK THROUGH GRASSLANDS

The image incorporates kangaroo grass, with an Urdu word "rehmat" that means blessing. The grass was one of the traditional food sources for the First People of Australia. It is also part of the ecological landscape, being resistant to fires and actually benefitting from a burning. The image is a reflection on accepting and promoting indigenous plants as the right choice for our collective future.

Nusra Latif Qureshi

Nusra’s art practice has developed through an in-depth study of conventional South Asian painting techniques in conjunction with image manipulation softwares. Her work ranges from small, highly detailed paintings to large scale digital prints that engage with the visual histories of South Asian region and Australian culture, pulling apart and reconfiguring the found patterns to construct new narratives. Her exhibition history includes shows in Australia, USA, Europe and Asia. Her most recent solo was at Warrnambool Art Gallery.
