Awareness of the vibrational nature of the universe informs every aspect of my work: gilded paintings with metal leaf, pigments, crystals and mother-of-pearl or digital prints of painted gouache mandalas.
My work deals with contemporary political issues such as consumerism, globalization and
international power relations through an examination of visual symbolic language such as
corporate logos, national flags, and product packaging.
My multi-media work explores in a serio-comic way how mythology serves as a coping mechanism in angst-ridden times and how diverse cultures coexist symbiotically. It relates to feminism in its focus on domestic items such as clothespins.
Through colorful works that on first glance look playful and whimsical, Khanâ€™s work illuminates a dark and complex political struggle with violence and identity that takes place through, on, and in public vehicles.
