My work serves as a reflection of my childhood, exploring the junction of my home as I was growing up versus its current state. Visualize the devastation to the environment caused by a political conflict. Focusing on the Gaza Envelope region, I aim to challenge the viewer to consider a more nuanced reading of the place, one that looks beyond dominant/occupant narratives and instead considers the region as a microcosm. Bear witness to the chaos of history, the present, and the violence that often alter the land I built layers of paint and materials to reflect the immense destruction to the landscape.
