Amna Walayat

Works from the A Flight of Two Half Birds series, 2022-23

A series of painting works that responded to the dialectics of the artist’s identity as a Pakistani woman living and working in Cork, Ireland. Following traditions of allegory and neo-Indo-Persian Miniature painting, the works focused on the navigation of different cultural models of female empowerment, motherhood, citizenship and shame.

Amna Walayat is a painter who lives in Cork (IE). Walayat has presented work at public arts institutions and galleries including the Munster Technical University Gallery, Cork (IE), Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (IE), Dublin Arts and Human Rights Festival, Mill Theatre, Dublin (IE).
