Artist statement
As a person that witnessed war, I was forced to leave my home multiple times, which created a sense of instability within me, at that time all I could see is boxes, we packed our valuable belongings in boxes and left, so now 10 years later, boxes remind me of that time and became a symbol of instability. The reason why I’ve chosen this painting was mainly because it’s based on life events that occurred during the war in Syria, the title is “Chaos”, referring to the chaotic life I’ve lived moving from one place to another, being unstable and having our belongings piled up in cardboard boxes.
