My work looks at an emotional response to conflict through materials such as cloth.
Cloth is a starting point in much of what I do. I distort its features, manipulating it often from flowing, to harsh and aggressive, forming a skin that speaks to the world. It has the potential to give comfort and shelter, reflecting an alchemy symbolising memory and history.
Underpinned by a deep connection with Middle eastern culture, my work seeks to demonstrate an often hidden
'inside emotion' that is rarely seen in media representation of conflict. These pieces create a sense of displacement through temporary structures of varying scales made of fabric and organic materials.
