Fouzia Zafar

Printmakers’ Printmaker 2017 ~ Fouzia Zafar
Fouzia lives and works in Glasgow. She works in print, paint and video. Her work responds to the themes of family histories, migration, absence and the strangeness of memory. Her figureless interiors/exteriors and looming objects create a nostalgic atmosphere that point to traces of humanity. She describes play as a key concept of her work. Play encompasses repeatedly finding, composing and constructing new tools and processes to explore objects’ history, surfaces, and qualities, whilst also constructing new narratives.
Fouzia Zafar is a member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers (ARE).
