About The Artwork

I am inspired by the characters in mythologies from Greece and Asia and the characters that represent individual Archetypes (characteristics) which is also within our Collective Unconsciousness. The only way I represent the characters Archetypes is through visual patterns. I believe that the complexity of our mind could only be represented by something that cannot be visually translated. The patterns that I create come from nature and animals form which are then refined into patterns that could only represent The Mind which I call “The Deep”, this made me think of the ocean that is still being explored and is still very mysterious. Similarly, so is the human mind and the characteristics of an individual. For this series I was fascinated with the Archetypes of Medusa and the Sirens and the idea of representing them by using scale patterns. There is something empowering about Medusa and the Sirens which helped me a lot in battling with Gender differences in my culture. Where women have more rules to obliged to than men. I create work by drawing and printing with Henna (which is a dye paste made from henna plant leaves) on a white painted plywood canvas with gold leaf. Each material has a reason to be on the canvas. The henna representing my own Balochi culture and the white paint representing western (British) Culture. In the Balochi culture white symbolises clean and new/modern. I wanted to use white to represent England as it is seen as “Morden and new” in Balochi culture. The Gold represents power and authority which I struggled to withhold as a women being brought up by two cultures. One old and the other new.
