Artist Statement

Inas is a story-teller that uses found ephemera and old books to assemble collages with a unique sense of humor towards worldly sensibilities. She is a heritage-driven artist who works with the cultural diversity she encounters in her trips around the world. She has a solid education in painting, drawing, printmaking, collage work, and art history. Her works also circulate the globe. They can be found in museums and private collections throughout several countries: Romania, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, Canada, Lebanon, The Netherlands, Finland, Morocco, Qatar, and The United States. Her collages play with the dichotomy between the sanctioned and the unsanctioned, and that of folk and fine art. They deliver an endearing form of satire as they express an ironic interpretation of class and nobility. The composition of her work addresses the following themes: Eastern culture, Arab culture, early colonial federalism, and violence against women.
