Taiba Akhtar is a Birmingham based Artist, Printmaker and Workshop Assistant. Her evolving interest in language and communication binds the spoken, written and the read. She is particularly intrigued within the intaglio field, surprised by the wonders of etching and the magical nature of engraving. Her visuals stem from time and the passing of time, entangling thoughts, feelings and actions.
Akhtar’s manipulative gestures reinforce an array of emotions and expressions; rhizomatic with her experiences enabling an enhanced ritual understanding. Her abstraction of language becomes performative, through the guise of writing, reciting and rewriting.
