Mary Thomas, “Arts Festival’s juried work taps into the ‘Unseen/Unheard’.” Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, June 11, 2015. “Also noteworthy are Saberah Malik's ‘Which One Is It,’ a cluster of stone-shaped batik- and shibori-dyed fiber forms that appear at once solid and weightless as ambient light moves through them.”

Bill O’Driscoll, “Arts Fest’s Juried Visual-Art Show.” Pittsburgh City Paper, June 11, 2015.

Bill Van Siclen, “New art exhibit makes good use of Vets gallery.” Providence Journal, April 23, 2015. “Warwick artist Saberah Malik achieves a similar effect in a series of small fiber-art sculptures. Made from translucent pieces of silk and polyester fabric, her work takes everyday bottle and vessel shapes and transforms them into something ethereal.”

Amanda Disanto, “Art League show brings together diverse body of work (Art League of Rhode Island 12th Annual Exhibition Review).” Jamestown Mercury, September 5-11, 2012, pp. 10-11. “Below and to the left of the Metcalf piece is what looks like an arrangement of precious stones. As the viewer draws nearer, the stones appear so light and delicate, it is as though they might float away. Reading the piece’s label, the viewer realizes that Saberah Malik’s sculpture ‘Boundary Unbounded’ is constructed of polyester fabric scraps marbled and spattered with inks. Such playfully deceptive objects embody the delightful interactivity that the best exhibitions offer visitors.”

Meredith Cutler, “Art in Fiber, Marblehead Arts Association.” Artscope, May/June 2012, p. 29. “Rhode Island artist Saberah Malik uses a molding technique she identifies as ‘enhanced oboshi’ to transform flat bolts of polyester fabric into freestanding, recognizable shapes of bottles and rocks arranged into larger installations.”

Rebecca Rafferty, “ART REVIEW: ‘Northeast Regional Contemporary Fiber Exhibition’.” Rochester City Newspaper, April 13, 2011. “‘Apothecary,’ an arrangement of shimmering fabric bottles by Saberah Malik.”
