Ambreen Butt

Ambreen Butt studied Indian and Persian Miniature Painting at Lahore's National College of Art in Pakistan. In 1997, she earned an MFA at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She has developed a personal aesthetic of examining Western and Islamic cultural paradoxes and tensions as they relate to wormen. The subject matter in her paintings is intensely personal, but also universal in that the work addresses the female body, presence, power, silence, language, and vulnerability.
