Artist Statement

I am Iraqi born multi media artist. I received my MFA degree from CGS. My earlier work was mostly architectural and organic abstract.
My latest body of work is "The Wall". Started as a poem. A poem about the "Arab Spring". As I was watching the rapid  and exciting development in the Arab world, glued to the TV news, watching the promising and hopeful protesters. The demands of the youth for freedom, bright future and democracy. I started writing poems to express my feelings. The poems were highly charged and emotional. I felt it has to be painted on canvas. So I did. Eleven panels of mixed media, Photos, found objects, photo transfer and heavy acrylic paint on canvas to depict the awakening of the Arab population. I ended up with several poems, photo transfers and acrylic painting, all to be exhibited as ONE.
