Zarina, Fold in the Sky, 2014, woodcut printed on BFK light paper mounted on Somerset Antique paper.

Works by Zarina are included in "Transcendent: Spirituality in Contemporary Art" on view at Burlington City Arts in Vermont.


"Transcendent" presents a selection of artists who explore or evoke themes of spirituality through their work. Challenging the unspoken taboo of representing the divine or faith in contemporary art, the exhibition aims to connect art and creative practice with the meditative or the sacred. Drawing from diverse traditions, the works in this exhibition reflect on questions of human nature, cultural identity, and sanctity in everyday life. Through a variety of approaches these artists seek a greater purpose in their work and a way to connect with the world. Featuring nationally and internationally recognized artists, Transcendent includes works by Anila Quayyum Agha, Leonardo Benzant, Maïmouna Guerresi, Shahzia Sikander, Sandy Sokoloff, Shelley Warren, and Zarina.
