Aisha's work is about the Creation of the Univers and its Creator, Allah. She does not attempt to replicate nature, but to convey what it represents. She paints shapes and forms to reference certain aspects of the creation of the universe. Each canvas is a window, looking out onto every aspect of God’s creation and, to avoid literal description, she camouflages appearance through layers of colour and Arabic calligraphy. Her work comprises a series of paintings that currently includes: The Big Bang; The Splitting of the Heavens & the Earth; Mountains, Water and Vegetation. She feels that modern life can dull our curiosity, both about religion and the genesis of things. She is therefore trying to create a rebirth - a religious / sacred art in a contemporary form.
