This series concentrates on developing an abstract atmosphere by using pattern to capture locations with distinctive natural settings. The images are collaged digital photographs that have been blended and overlapped to crate a composition led by organic shape and color.
My work explores texture, color and pattern through digital and compositional abstraction. I am Arab, Jewish and American therefore I am pulled by the political tension between East and West and draw on aspects of Middle Eastern design, particularly the Persian rugs that I grew up with. My compositions use repeated patterns layered and mixed with photography, mixed media and freestyle lines. My earlier work was more literal in its representation while my recent work drifts toward abstraction.
