Artist Statement

Conventional art and everyday materials, including plastic sheeting and masking tape Western and Eastern art traditions, including geometric abstraction and Islamic art like the Ottoman miniature and architectural traditions, have been co-mingled into small drawings and paintings, artist books, small objects and large mixed media installations. Recently, I have been creating a series of “fake space” installations, including duct taped in plastic space cum “shelter in place” safe room, a miniature "Lilliputian" landscape and an ongoing collaborative tent city project.
