Aisha Hussain uses the Wasli with a great deal of dexterity. The Walsi is a resilient surface and is constructed with layers of paper. Aisha takes it to the extreme, and her creations are made on surfaces which are made with multiple Waslis. It moves away from being a flat surface imprisoned behind glass, but has weight and depth. She calls it ‘raised wali’, therefore a new medium. The work is black and white, but scarlet enters as the new character and makes its own place on the surface.
