Seher Shah’s practice is dedicated to drawing, printmaking and sculpture. The intimacy of the hand, through mark-making, has been a source of curiosity, research, and experimentation in her practice. She has worked with drawing and printmaking exploring ideas in architecture and perspective drawing traditions; contested relationships between history, objects and time; and the relationship between poetry and abstraction. Through works on paper using drawings, etchings, photogravures and woodcuts, and sculptural studies in cast iron, her work speaks to the poetics and fractures of how we view the landscape, through the historical and intimate.

She is involved in long-term collaborative exchanges with architectural photographer Randhir Singh and the Glasgow Print Studio, through studies in form and intaglio printmaking.

Seher Shah (b. 1975, Karachi) received her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Architecture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1998. Her works can be found in collections ranging from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Queens Museum, New York, Brooklyn Museum, New York; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Tate Modern, London; Art Jameel Collection, Dubai; Hallen für Neue Kunst, Schauffhausen; Kiran Nader Museum of Art, New Delhi; and the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation, Vienna amongst others.
