Pakistani, 21st century, female.

Active in Lahore, Pakistan, and Seattle, Washington.

Born in Pakistan.

Miniatures and woodworker.

Acting against her family’s wishes, Humaira Abid attended the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistan, and then decided to master the traditionally male-dominated medium of woodworking. During her studies, she also received a double minor in miniature paintings and continued to push the envelopes of both woodworking and miniature painting through combining the two practices.

Upon entering the room the viewer was confronted with a barbed wire fence painstakingly carved from wood. Hanging from the wooden barbed wire was a pair of underwear, again carved from wood, and splotched with red so as to appear stained with blood. Against the other wall was a series of miniature portraits, all of real children from various refugee camps; the wall is littered with bullet holes. Other works displayed in the show included pieces of luggage, baby pacifiers, a breast pump, and a swing, all meticulously carved from wood and often stained with red spots. Each work brings to the forefront the difficult imagery that often accompanies the journey of the refugee and, more specifically, the female refugee....
