Ambreen Butt’s What is left of me addresses current political oppression and violence globally through large-scale resin installations and collage-based works. The creation of each piece is labor intensive and built upon meditative repetitive forms. Butt studied traditional Indian and Persian miniature painting at the National College of Art in Lahore and has built a unique visual language based upon that training.
Butt was born in Lahore, Pakistan and is currently based in Texas. Among the many institutions that have exhibited her work are the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn; the Heard Museum, Phoenix; the Pacific Asia Museum, Pasadena; the Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel; the National Art Gallery, Islamabad; and the Sunshine Museum, Beijing.
