Moucharabiehs

The White Series

The moucharabiehs fascinate me particularly. These ornaments, placed on windows, allow residents to see outdoors without being seen.

When Islamic motifs are embodied in architectural structures, stone and wood are transformed into delicate lace.

This series of paintings is inspired by this principle.

Moucharabiehs – 2015 ongoing – each frame is 30,5 X 30,5 cm
