Eeman Masood (b.1998 in Lahore, Pakistan) graduated from the prestigious National College of Arts in 2021 with a major in miniature painting. She was awarded a merit scholarship throughout her years at the NCA. Masood’s work revolves around the feeling of nostalgia that comes with loss over a period of time. Looking at the belongings of people who are no longer present, and feeling their presence, that flash of memory is like a dream. This clash between dream and reality evokes longing for the past which is mirrored in her delicately rendered work with faded but yet clear visuals. Muffled in images of ethereal jungles and floralscapes where mythical creatures flaunt in paradiso of personal pleasure and pain is how Masood constructs her narratives onto her laborious miniature paintings.
