Resident Artist

Anila Quayyum Agha

Medium: Fiber Artist
Residency: January 1, 2005–
January 1, 2006

Anila Agha creates her works using processes that are associated with textile arts, like screen printing, wax, organic resists and embroidery. The embroidery is used as a drawing medium, connecting and bridging the gaps of the many layers that result from her explorations of concept and process. Anila’s current works are a series of drawings incorporating a combination of translucent and opaque effects on paper, through the use of the formal elements of form, color, and patterning. Anila was born and raised in Pakistan. She has a BFA from the National College of Arts, Lahore and an MFA from the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas.
