Bio Morph, dyed and embroidered cheesecloth, 2016
Bio morph is an installation of materials mimicking the textures of human skin to explore the emotions associated with health and disease. Shah Noor Shafqat’s current works are inspired by motherhood. She designs textile surfaces that reflect on her struggles as a mother with her daughter’s eczema, and the frustration that occurs from being unable to protect her offspring from this health threat. Shah Noor utilizes rough skin-like textures and rosy tones to produce biomorphic art that becomes the psychically and physically debilitating aspects of this disease.
Shah Noor Shafqat is an MFA candidate studying in the School of Art at University of Arizona. She has a BFA in Textile design from National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan. Her digital art work for Android and iOs, includes Tap Mall, Blood Brothers, Puzzle Fantasy and Fatal Frontier, which are available on App store and google play.
