Zarina's adolescence rotated around her family's home in Aligarh, a space that would move her for quite a long time to come. At ten years of age, Zarina encountered the Partition of India that split the previous British settlement into present-day India and Pakistan. However her family was briefly uprooted by the change, they before long got back to a level of dependability on the Indian side of the boundary. In any case, the Partition left an enduring effect, one that craftsmanship pundit Holland Cotter recommends "set her free from her underlying foundations and frequented her life and work."
In spite of her continuous moves and inevitable foundation in the New York workmanship and scholastic scenes, Zarina kept on returning to subjects of home and having a place in her work. She joined other contemporary craftsmen, like Mona Hatoum, in examining this misfortune. In a 2017 meeting with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, she thought about the job of misfortune in her life: "New York isn't my home, this is another person's home. I've lived here for a very long time yet my personality is essentially that of an outcast."
Zarina Hashmi's Letters from Home 2004 Letters from Home series unites the individual and aggregate loss of home. A guide of Manhattan, the floor plan of a house, and strong dark lines overlay individual letters of misfortune composed by Zarina's sister. One Zarina Hashmi Letters from Home set arrived at GBP 50,000 (USD 64,800) at Christie's in 2014. The seven works, which opened the bartering, arrived at well past their high gauge of GBP 18,000 (USD 23,300).
Costs for Zarina's craft have consistently move with the turn of the century, an example predictable with a developing worldwide appreciation for South Asian ladies specialists. A bunch of 22-karat gold leaf, paper, and ink pieces arrived at USD 53,625 at a 2014 Sotheby's sale only two years after its fruition. Late presentations at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim, and the Whitney Museum of American Art likewise helped Zarina's standing somewhat recently of her life.
