A Brief Stay
إقامة مؤقتة

Exhibited at the School of Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, USA as a BFA Thesis, A Brief Stay compromises of three monoprints and a diptych. Using imagery of relationships and life in the UAE versus life in Boston, the prints were created by layering photographs on an etching press using inks and gum arabic, followed by layers of indirect drawing. The large-scale prints focus on themes of Emirati identity, the transience of being a visitor in a foreign place, and feelings of displacement and homesickness.
