In this body of work, art, design, and heritage come together in contemporary compositions and patterns that feature abstracted, deconstructed geometries. It is inspired by traditional Palestinian embroidery motifs, and Jordanian Bedouin weavings, as a nod to my own heritage. Thus, it has become an exploration of belonging – or a lack thereof – and of identity through diaspora.
Contemporary colour palettes and clean lines bring a quality of freshness to the heritage theme. The markings in the pieces are delicate and careful, created using a combination of colour pencil, marker, and fine-tipped pens.
