My work speaks about transition from one culture to another. The process of change and transformation encountered when different societies interact. For an artist, this often results in a retelling of their culture, their past now seen differently through the eyes of a new context. Yet, amongst the divergence and contrast there is also a sense of return, a revisiting of original values. Our identities remain preserved they are woven into our thinking like thread into a fabric.
My work explores this journey. Using the symbolism of Islamic calligraphy voices weave through multiple forms, a collective re-telling of journeys made.
