Huma Bhabha - Untitled - 2017
In her works on paper, Bhabha creates atmospheric images, often figurative, blending animal and human features. Huma Bhabha’s edition for the Whitechapel Gallery derives from a photographic collage. An image of a tree in the landscape is combined with a donkey-like totem, recalling her sculptural assemblages, which often incorporate the use of tribal masks. Layering the rich dark tones of the photogravure and emerald green of the spit bit e etching to produce a vibrant enchanting effect, this print undermines the documentary tradition with a darker, personal and fantastical dimension.
