Alisha Mir has had a fascination with the push and pull between layering to conceal and engraving to expose. In an attempt to keep the subjects in the realm they exist in. In 2014, comes a transverse wave which shifts the process of making. Mir’s work now consists of acid etchings on steel; she has been interested in the ‘fantastic’ relating to the uncanny. An oscillation between what is there and what is created, she finds the in-between quite curious and so a world of human-animal hybrids are often subjects in her work. She deliberately tampers with the surface so there is interference when viewing the pieces that rely on the light or lack thereof, this gives a lenticular holographic illusion to the work.
