Rana Begum blurs the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture. Her visual language draws from the urban landscape as well as geometric patterns from traditional Islamic art and architecture. Begum has used spot and spray painting and techniques used in other parts of her work, to give a rich interaction of colour, form and texture. The painting comes alive when the jacket is worn as the fabric shifts with the body, manipulating the work and creating a sense of movement.
