Artist Statement:

Bahrain is an island but seaside postcards have yet to exist here. Beaches are not celebrated, as they should be on this conservative island. By adopting British wit and the essence of the postcard as a snapshot in history I hope to capture the true essence of the beaches surrounding the perimeter of this little island that was once referred to as “the garden of Eden” and what they mean as a reflection of the time, place, environment and culture we live in today.
