MH Sarkis

Student work

MH Sarkis is an artist born to Lebanese parents, and was less than a year old when she moved to Lagos (Nigeria). She was raised there and moved to London (UK), where she now lives and works.

Arising from personal history and cultural experiences, Sarkis examines ideas of the "other", the self, relationships and power dynamics. In her paintings, these themes are explored via abstracted geographies and female figures, which act as planes where these concepts are debated.

This work is called Thing II (Al Qaa)
