Shadow of Paradise (Series)
Photograph from Iraq at an amusement park. This image has been re-photographed, and hand printed onto watercolor paper through an encaustic technique. Image has been melted with additional encaustic medium and hand-colored with oil pastels.
"Shadow of Paradise" is comprised of 97 photographs depicting my family who are alive, dead, or missing in Iraq. As an Iraqi immigrant displaced, and living in the United States, this project is dear to my heart as I come to terms with the country I grew up in being slowly eroded and redacted from history.
