Shaheed, Shahead, Shayad 2005

In this series of eight 127 x 127 cm watercolor on paper paintings, I focus on reversing dominant powers that document a version of history. The images are taken from photojournalism, largely omitted from headlines to maintain a political climate, to create a fantasy scenario of militant resistance. The locations are unknown, the specific struggle unclear. There is a feeling of creating an amorphous people’s resistance somewhere in a “third world nation” or third world people in a first world nation, without a definitive location. The mystified become de-mystified through subtle changes or changing context, I attempt to re create my own sort of revolution. These images are presented as a form of counter propaganda. Paintings of guns and explosives within the hands of  feminized black and brown hands and veiled and masked faces become an insurgency to erase to shift the notions of who creates change.
