This is a piece that was created as a reaction to so much negativity in the public dialogue, especially concerning the UAE and negative stereotypes that work against the women of the UAE by way of judgment based on a lack of knowledge and widely circulating untruths. It pleads the viewers to remember that there are real people behind the stories that are false and damaging, and these real people suffer in real ways. Through the tearing up of magazine pages to create this artwork, I wanted to literally express the feeling that many Emirati women experience as they are facing prejudice, judgment, misrepresentation, and misunderstanding in their own country and outside it.
On a more global level, this painting can be adapted to say this: Be mindful of confusing political discourse with emotional rhetoric. Opinion makers have the privilege and the responsibility to set the tone for the dialogue on social media. Insults, generalizations, racism, profiling, and assumptions cause real damage to civilized debate. If you choose to circulate untruths and misinformation to provoke sensationalism, then you stop being an opinion maker and become a demagogue. Your choice; and also mine.
