Hate no one, no matter how much they've wronged you.
Live humbly, no matter how wealthy you become.
Think positively, no matter how hard life is.
Give much, even if you've been given little.
Keep in touch with the ones who have forgotten you, forgive who has wronged you, and do not stop praying for the best for those you love.
Ali Ibn Abi Talib
Globally displaced Palestinians yearn for their homeland to be a sanctuary, a place of refuge. Recent political discussions around Palestine not being a recognised entity have been part of my research. My collaboration with Lapworth Museum of Geology has helped me discover archived geological maps of Palestine. Purchase of this artwork will raise much needed funds to help the peolpe of Palestine. I have partnered up with MAP (Medical Aid Palestine) to donate 50% from the sale of this art piece.
I was artist in residence at the Lapworth Museum of Geologyin 2017 (see my gallery page Future Possibilities Lab 2017 - 2018).
If you would like further clarification on to how read my maps please refer to my Gallery page for a breakdown or KEY.
