Monotype is an amazing method for me because it allows me to convey my ideas in an immediate fashion. Still there are surprises which are associated with the texture of the paper, ink itself and the variations in the printing itself. The story behind these images can only be interpreted and not told in words.
I created these prints at my artist residency in Tuscany during the summer of 2021 as part of my simplification project – which is a life-long goal for me.
What will be Left?
These prints are intended to encourage the viewer to consider a future without most of the things we take for granted, such as snow, certain species of birds, butterflies and bumblebees. I depict each of these “absences” in one single drawing.
Floating Tales / Allegories Series
These are prints of imaginary people with no definite time and place, not even a hidden meaning.
“Overwritten Scripts” emphasizes the inequality that exists based on socio-cultural norms rather than Islamic principles. The descriptions of each print can be found in the digital portfolio of the series.
To Moon Series
During the summer of 2018, I created one small monoprint every morning. The result is the series “To Moon.”
“Trousseau” series I am creating displays belongings a woman takes with her to her husband’s house.
