Public Displays of Affection

“The black Abaya is the dominant image against the white of the canvas... it is bold and assertive and empowering. Living in the gulf you will notice that although women wear the black Abaya and Hijab they still find ways to express their individuality through accessories such as hand bags, jewelry, shoes or adornment directly on the fabric itself. I like that only one element in each image snakes out from beneath her Abaya, and by using red I draw immediate attention to it.”

“A simple gaze is often the easiest and only possible way for a man and a woman to spark a connection without ever even speaking or meeting in person. It is their first encounter, the first agreement that there is a mutual attraction or interest.”

“I have learned when to say things, when to make them loud and clear and when it’s better not to say anything at all.”

“My work is all about communicating a message that can be understood and felt by the masses, regardless of whether or not they necessarily agree with it, as long as it is felt, understood and remembered.”
