Mahera Khaleque
My most recent body of work began with a sense of loss as well as a desire to belong due to my displacement from my home country, Bangladesh. After two decades of living in the United States, now, I focus more on my integration process. As an artist, I speak from an in-between position that allows me to, frequently, meander through similarities and differences between two cultures. To me, the visual interpretation of my constant integration process is a progression that is being interwoven by the memories and experiences of two different places that I call home.
