Confinement

A look into the familial, cultural bonds that confine us out of love and obligations, etc.

Approx. A5 postcard illustrations with experimental watercolor paintings. 

Stories and anecdotes regarding each memory captured from the family albums.

exhibited in an old damaged photo album to represent my mum and sister ruining any photographs to get back at each other over the years. That combined with not wanting to display private family photos (hijabs etc)- are why I chose to use illustrations.
