My paintings are about the issues closer to my heart. In the new series of works, I painted the children glowing in their dark and brown skin, the social marker of their existence. Selecting dark or brown complexioned persons or women in a burka with unidentifiable complexion. I postulate the body as information. The physical body of a person has become the embodiment of information regarding his identity.
