After living in Jordan’s dry, hot, desert climate for a year, I moved to Barbados, the easternmost island in the Caribbean. I went from living in richly complex and ancient culture, surrounded by clay, sand, and cave paintings, to a former British Colony, a lush and humid island covered in sugar cane, built upon coral and limestone, and surrounded by water. As I adapted from one place to another, which I initially perceived to be so vastly different, I began to recognize the commonalities and similar struggles and celebrations each country had earned as part of its identity.
Over time, and after moving to New York City in 2010, the landscapes of the tropics and desert merged; visual imprints of ocean horizons overlappped with patterns of islamic tiles. patterns and layers of human behavior that appear across cultures and time overlapped, and my memories and stories abstracted into layers of symbols, textures and colors.
