My work opens a platform for discussion on the topics of resilience, trauma and cultural displacement. I seek to bring awareness to the emotional baggage of war and the struggle that survivors have to conceal in daily life. My large-scale oil paintings and installations employ portraits of individuals behind masks, elements of wreckage and fragments of nostalgic interiors to form destroyed environments.
