Gouache on Paper
Part of a series in which themes of BDSM are explored in the context of the Islamic Miniature, in which I pose questions regarding the image of the oppressed Muslim woman, and instead attempt to visualize contexts in which the symbols typically associated with oppression can be reclaimed as empowering, using authentic expressions of cultural hybridity and sites in which this kind of recontextualization is allowable. This painting explored the idea of being ‘bound’, literally or figuratively, and the ways in which consent and authentic bodily expression can reframe assumptions on the theme.
