Two Sisters

Making Art History Work For Me

Role: Conceptual Development, Art Director, Model

"Two Sisters" appropriates Frida Kahlo’s way of displaying her mixed heritage in “Two Fridas."

"Stella" is my interpretation of Frank Stella's "Empress of India." In my traditional Pakistani clothing I've taken the flattened picture plane, metallic brown tones, and dynamic angles in Stella's original painting to show flattening of the personality in the context of a selfie.
