My thesis project is a collection of paintings and drawings that juxtapose iconic Islamic ornamentation with portraits of members of my family, both living and dead. The creation of images of living beings, particularly people, has long been banned in Islam and, as a result, the faces of my loved ones have long lived only in my memory. For my sake and theirs, I have liberated them onto the canvas, combining them with the intricate patterns of my youth. In doing so, I drew upon influences from renowned portrait painters such as Rembrandt, Lucian Freud, and Celia Paul. The result is both immediate and nostalgic, abstract and concrete: a combination uncommon in Islamic art.
