3 Figurative Work

Initially I made some figurines for a college project obviously inspired by Ancient Near Eastern carved examples .





By the last one I was already abstracting the shape and carried this further in my  Hijab series for the final exhibition .

These owed inspiration to Aisha Khaled’s paintings but were thoroughly misinterpreted . After this I made 3 more figures

but found the chess-piece like shapes unrewarding to make and difficult to position , whether commercially or morally . I can’t imagine why I would make figures again .
