Lot Essay

From an ideology of distinct resolution and convergence, Shurooq Amin creates art that is thought-provoking; pushing the boundaries of her society, the polarity between east and west is the backbone of her images as she struggles as an artist in her homeland of Kuwait. She uses photographic elements within her acrylic painting, sometimes incorporating collage to emphasize the gravity of the issues she resents. Her interdisciplinary technique reflects a culture interspersed and immersed in socio-political ritualism.
