Najeebah Al-Ghadban: Figure #99658

350.00 950.00

Mixed Media Illustration, 2014

8” x 8”

This piece is a part of the "A White Asylum" series—collage and assemblage that explores the human psyche utilizing shadow-play and industrial objects. The following figure combines paper and wire to articulate emotion. In this instance, resilience is the dichotomy and balance of active and contemplative stillness against the invasive and overwhelming wire of emotion. A premeditation to action.

Resilience, to me, means, "I cannot be erased." Or, "I am still here."
