'Transfigurations' are a series of cut-out artworks. They aim transfigure the notions of femininity, traversing cultures of East and West. The body of work is multifaceted taking into account the different representations of the Middle Eastern woman in society seen in the eyes of the European Orientalist painters. It alludes to the 1001 Arabian Nights, Islamic geometry and 19th century Orientalist painting. This fusion of cultural paradigms attempts to demystify traditional concepts of the Middle Eastern woman-historically and metaphorically.
