Class of 2021 Exhibition
‘M-power’ is a representation of Muslim women, who appear more empowering than how today’s society perceives them as. I use patterns to express my thoughts and emotions of the complexities between the East and West. However I subvert this by fusing elements of Islamic art with western motifs to form a sense of unity. I then purposely incorporate the Nike logo, which acts as a guidance or journey towards feeling peace, hope and acceptance, leading to a portal archway. This spotlights the rejection and misrepresentation of Islam and its dress code in a dystopian to utopian manner.
