This series expresses my distress at the plight of refugees in Europe and the conflicts from which they are escaping. The images combine photographs I took in Syria, maps of the migration routes of those fleeing war, and images of my family arriving in Canada as refugees. The work merges the past with the present - the never-ending flight from conflict and the rejection of those desperate to find refuge.
My previous exhibits in Madrid, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Toronto have tried to shed light on social issues; displacement, repression, and environmental change. Layering is an essential element of my work. It allows me to express the complexity of our world - painted acrylic sheets hovering over the photographs below.
