Artist’s Statement

My work is based on circumstances that I have personally experienced and witnessed: first as a child, the 1979-1989 Russian invasion of my native Afghanistan, followed by the Afghani civil war, and later my life as a refugee in Pakistan and lastly as a resident living in many parts of the U.S. Being between two cultures, I frequently face questions about a wide variety of views concerning these experiences to which I have no concrete answer, including my own; thus I choose several means to metaphorically suggest the complexities of life in a broader context.
