Aidha Badr (1996) is an artist from Brooklyn, NY. Formally trained as a portrait painter, Aidha has recently begun focusing on the early onset realization of what is referred to as a ‘loss’ of the object occurring during the early years of a woman’s life. Using memory as a medium Aidha explores theories of female desire, attachment, and object relations which compel women to an eternal life of desire and longing.
Aidha’s work deals with universal experiences of femininity, childhood, and domestication and how women cope with emotional states and interpret affective information.
Painting in an abstract timeline she works through her memories from the perspective of her childhood self, exploring parallels and unravelling her own childhood as she remembers it, as well as how it was told through stories and hearsay.
Aidha currently lives and works in Cyprus
