Using the technique of marquetry, or inlaid image, these collages are made from images culled from vintage National Geographic magazines. They were inspired by the Land Sea Sky digital animations we made in 2023 and use a similar technique (albeit handmade) of collaging images into pre chosen compositions from mid-century American photography.

Halal Series 1
(2010)

A popular pastime in the UAE is shopping. From the vast and numerous western style malls to the traditional souks to the local grocery stores, there is a constant flow of imported products into the UAE. In this series of collage works, traditional architectural pattern motifs are inscribed with snack food wrappers, packaging from canned meats, and labels from beauty supplies from the local market. These are presented in ornate gilt frames that are typically used to frame images of the UAE’s rulers or passages from the Koran.
