“My work is a constant reevaluation of the human condition where I involve elements of ethnographic research that focus on the observation of social practices and interactions as well as the ways in which European art history has had an effect on my own culture. I am particularly curious about socio-political and religious environments where the subject of being Female is themed and I translate ‘her’ in to a legend through visual language.
After a decade of working as a professional artist I began to realise that the nature of my art consistently traces intersections between European classical paintings with elements of feminist performance practices and I create various re-enactments through an Arab lens. I seek to question cultural systems and truths to generate new waves of multicultural understanding by conflicting the western and the arab gaze.
Visually and personally while creating art in my studio, I take greatest delight in the story! I feel deep naive pleasure when my drawings are dramatic and when I can feel emotional intensity, especially in my large scale drawings.”
