In contrast to the pencil drawings, the “Frictions” series from 2010 to 2012 uses white acrylic paint, applied like an explosion to the ink-treated handmade paper, on which quieter shapes are painted in gouache. This series originated from the “White Screen” photographs, which show an obstructed view into empty shop units in a Cairo shopping centre. The panes of glass have been painted with white paint; traces of third parties are beginning to appear.
