Bachelor of Fine Arts (Drawing & Printmaking)
With an interest in fabricating synthetic spaces and weaving narratives, my work centres around the influences of symbolic structures—both literal and imposed—formed by social tensions and power relations. Informed by my heritage and background, I reference the structure of Turkish carpets and Islamic prayer rugs as both a site of cultural production and signifier of a social chronicle. Utilising a drawing-based practice, aesthetically I aim to depict unity within multiplicity and diversity within repetition. I aim for my work to be dialectic rather than dichotomous to facilitate a dissipation of binary ways of seeing and experiencing. My wager is to prompt people to look closer at what is pushed to the periphery and then question the hierarchy of value.
