2017 – Present

This silkscreen series melds classic elements of middle eastern and western motifs into new, yet timeless, designs. In these compositions, I incorporate colors, shapes, and specific references to iconic forms such as the wheel, and use the printmaking process to create multiple, overlapping layers. But this series is more than just a formal exercise: it also references my personal story in which I have had to balance my Syrian heritage with my life as an American. I am expressing my appreciation for my freedom, while I am also acknowledging my past.
