Far Above our Heads

‘Far Above our Heads’ are works alluding to worlds unknown to us, and the mystery of human physical death and what comes with/after it.

Through the "conversation with Gibran" project, I found that Gibran’s consistent practice of painting and writing reflects the way one inserts trust and faith in an art practice as a means to live life and understand it. Within the ‘Journeys Through our Heritage’ show, my inquiry illustrates our need to create ritual and meaning around tragedy and personal awakenings. I question this ‘in- between’ space, in which his painted characters appear to exist, as if they are stuck and waiting for a bigger event to take place such as a miracle or a monumental shift.
