I am happy to be writing from the snowy town of Johnson, Vermont Studio Center (VSC), where I am an artist-in-residence this month. Here, I am diving deeper into my large-scale wall drawings. The work grapples with the dialectics of language, migration, Muslim identity, gender, and nationalism. I am also looking at process, materials, drawing and performance.
For this residency, I received support from VSC, Alwan for the Arts/3rd I NY and the Greater Columbus Arts Council's Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Professional Development and Research Grant.
