'In, At and Around'

"When one looks at Soraya Sikander’s work, one feels that might be experiencing the secrets of the cosmos. Soraya’s mixed media work has an elegant sense of rhythm and pattern reminiscent of Persian and Indian miniatures, these offer us the opportunity to pleasure in the harmonies of the visual." - Professor Gerda Roper, Dean School of Arts and Media, University of Teesside.

PALETTE, 'Between Sight and Memory'

"Sikander is quickly becoming one of South Asia’s leading artists, mostly known for her pioneering works in the form of calligraphic landscapes. Her landscapes and nature studies go deeper than appearances, creating impressions of reality while discussing her personal views on life as well as socio-political issues plaguing our world today. Her ability to redefine landscape painting and, in a way, revive it in the modern context is what has caught the imagination of the international art community." - Art critic, Nimra Khan
