Tulips in the West (2018)

Traditional paper marbling has long been consumed as a two dimensional practice and centered on producing culturally engrained imagery. This is mainly because of the Alum, Carrageenan and natural paints in the liquid that predominantly accommodate single plane and porous materials like paper. Techniques in traditional paper marbling, especially in the Mediterranean, largely obtain a similar appearance in the production of fine arts objects. Tulips in the West takes on the discourse of experimentation on contemporary materials that employ paper marbling as a creative method to question the gendered design aesthetics of traditional paper marbling along with 20th century Western artwork.
