Siham Rachid, Oklahoma City Member Since January 2010 Artist Statement As an aspiring artist, I feel a certain social responsibility to the world around me. I also firmly believe that art is a significant point of view of the history and psyche of mankind. I am interested in exploring the human condition and social experiences. I shy away from concentrating on one area or another, for fear to limit the means in which my creativity can be expressed. Whether it’s gesture drawing, moving images or everything in between, I tend to use colours to challenge the boundaries of form and space, as well as, give the viewer hints as to what may lurk beneath the surface. I am what I create, but my creation is only a reflection of who I was at a specific moment in time. I am also my worst critic, hence I feel the greatest bliss and serenity not from a finished work, but during the creative process itself.
