Exhibition Catalogue 

Launched in 2014, the Tashkeel Critical Practice Programme offers sustained studio support, critique, mentorship and production to UAE-based artists.
Sophiya's work can be divided into five distinct series that are all executed on paper. The  techniques range from pastels to digital prints, utilizing acrylics, thread, collage, teawashes and gouache. 
Nooks of Power aims to investigate the ways and methods in which humans acquire, hoard and unleash authoritative power, with Sophiya dissecting herself as specimen no. 1 within this exploration.
