"Quackistan"
1996 Oil on Canvas

My continuing series of double image map paintings 
brings the subcontinent into focus.

Nuclear armed Pakistan and India are in confrontation 
over the disputed region of Kashmir.

Only the mentality of a quack would go so far as to 
deploy nuclear force and destroy humanity.

"Origins"
from the Hair-Maps Series
2004 Site-Specific Installation

Carriers of my DNA, I consider these maps to be
self-portraits -cartographies of my own experience as 
an immigrant. In Hair-Maps, race and gender converge 
to deconstruct simple notions of subjectivity, 
elaborating ideas that resonate in the complexity of 
exile in the contemporary world.

"Who will you be wearing?" explores the apocalyptic 
fallout from an economic standpoint, as well as, 
pokes fun at the relationship between fashion and 
identity.
