About The Artwork

In this teetering stack series, my aim was to create a precarious balance that translate the vulnerability of human existence. By presenting a stack of things and shapes the verge of collapse or dispersal, I wanted to express the relentless and possibly futile human effort to go on and build (a sense of self, a life, accomplishments, a legacy), to find significance and meaning despite the incoherence of the sum of fragments. 
I specifically thought of Sartre who writes about “the constructions created by people to hide the anguish of an incomplete existence”.

I create colourful dreamscapes inhabited by silhouettes of living creatures longing for an Elsewhere. My work evokes our endless quest for an elusive destination (be it a higher ground or a different emotional state) by contrasting movement and stillness, shadows and light, emotions and reality. One of my trademarks is the use of collaged elements, interwoven in complex layers of acrylics paint, to reflect the flotsam and jetsam of life. My colours are vivid: reflecting where I grew up (Caribbean and Morocco). Other key influences have been my travels and the works of Matisse, Frida Kahlo & Karin Mamma Anderson.
