An artist and traveller, Fatima Albudoor uses printmaking to combine writing, drawing and photography. This layered aesthetic is as much a combination of mediums as it is a palimpsest of thoughts, feelings and memories. Her faded images appear ghost-like, hovering just beyond the tangible here and now, as if emissaries from past experiences and past worlds. She becomes a cartographer mapping the passage of time and the flight of feelings. Poignant yet strident, her speculative documents of impermanence echo with the past. Her works consider the composition of life and are infused with caught transient traces of shifting social ephemera.
Born in Dubai, Fatima is a UAE national who has lived and studied in Dubai, Boston, London and Dublin. She received a BFA in Studio Art from Northeastern University in Boston, USA. Fatima’s work has been exhibited in Art Dubai and DIFC Art Nights, as well as in exhibitions in Abu Dhabi, Boston and Venice. She is a graduate of the Salama Bint Hamdan Emerging Artist Fellowship (2016) and currently lives and works in Dubai, where her studio is based.
