Censored Series, 2012-2015.

This series of paintings was based on art books from Iran, where reproductions of any nudity by artists like Picasso, Matisse, and Duchamp were covered with black lines or pixilated so that the painting or sculpture were obscured. Other paintings comment on IKEA's catalogue in Saudi Arabia where the women have been removed from the ad or blacked out by hand on the covers of boxes for kiddie swimming pools.
