As per Nawal-

Using color with great sophistication and bringing out the essential character of my subject, I have transformed the works into vibrant statements through my strong color perception.

The stances of my figures, always portrayed in singles, are created with care so that underlying mood of the form is presented like a narrative unfolding on the space. Besides giving rein to a full view of feminine forms, I have included a subtle suggestiveness through use of mask, held away from the main face like a dislocated form, but which deliberately draws attention to itself, bringing out the lifeless essence of a mask held away from the true features on view.

The women impressed in the world of their own and the graphic boundaries not only define my artistic style but also help to contain the imagined within its parameters.
