This painting is a contemporary take on the congested interior spaces of old Lahore and Delhi. Two separate countries but a similar sense of community living depicted through texture and shapes. The title of the painting is a take on the popular board game called snakes and ladders which is again commonly played by most kids in India and Pakistan. Building on the concept of the game and how success and failure go hand and hand with luck and chance playing its role. Walls and Ladders tries to capture the same concept of success and failure using the analogy of architectural elements like walls that hinder you from going forward in life and ladders that help you reach great heights. With reference to the two cities, the artist is trying to comment on the idea of progress, infrastructure and urban development portraying success and prosperity in our societies. This diptych painting uses thick acrylic paints mixed with plaster to create texture and geometric composition that feels congested almost like a maze. Shades of blue, grey and black are accented with ochre yellow, white and gold foil to create a beautiful contrast and add depth to the painting. The artist wants her viewers to feel a sense of 3D space with architectural elements that are both old and new.
