Book summary

Free of being prescribed while using a very prescribed and structured form. I like that tension. Miniature painting comes with a set of rules It's the materiality, the seductiveness of the surface, the investment, the submission, the hours that are put in In the end, they are very meditative and meaningful gestures, like ritual. In this sense, miniature painting is more about subverting modernity than subverting tradition. --Shahzia Sikander (from the interview with Bhabha) [via]
