Lubna Ali’s practice draws upon her Islamic heritage and explores her sense of self as a British Muslim. She uses her knowledge of traditional Islamic geometry and combines it with her interest of minimalist art to create works on paper. Her work represents spirituality and sacredness through the repetition of patterns as this brings forward the concept of unity and devoutness in the Islamic culture. She aims to refresh the current narrative of British Muslim identity by openly discussing the issues affecting the Muslim community. Ali’s practice is primarily print based.
