My work addresses the distortion of narrative. Through the collection and deconstruction of literary and historical references, I reimagine traditional archetypes to discern how old stories align with modern schools of thought. My primary interest lies in finding connecting threads between European and South-Asian canons, investigating the commingling of cultural iconography in fables, myths and historical points of view. While I investigate an array of subjects, my Islamic heritage is often responsible for the religious motifs etched through my practice. My desire to engage a more personal narrative can be seen in my recent sculptural installations.
