Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi, who uses the nearly 8,000-square-foot open-air space (the rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art) as his canvas, depicts his emotional response to violence occurring in Pakistan and across the globe, by working areas with blood-like spilled and splattered red acrylic paint into patterns of lush ornamental leaves that evoke the luxuriant walled gardens that are ubiquitous in miniatures of the Mughal court and also echo the foliage of Central Park surrounding the Roof Garden. Qureshi is the first artist to create a work that is be painted directly onto the roof’s surface of the museum, encouraging visitors to walk on it as they view it.
