acrylic on Canvas, 40 x 40 cm

Juxtaposing ethereal transparencies with the perspective of walls in a room, and a floor of sand, I chose a literal interpretation of the poet’s experience. For Ousha Al Suwaidi to awake from a dream and have poetry flow like water was such a miraculous gift. I aimed to capture that dream-like experience, and in doing so, honor her legacy as the United Arab Emirates’ Fatat Al-Arab.

Many say to pick a style and stick with it. I say why? Why must I be defined by the way I use my brush, the subject matter I choose, or the way in which I decide to tell a story on canvas? I thrive when I'm toggling between realism, expressionism, and the abstract. Oh, I suppose there will come a day when I'll settle down in one direction, but in the meantime, I'm going to continue challenging myself to explore, experiment, and enjoy the creative journey without boundaries.
