Perceptions from afar are not always accurate: our acceptance of the traditional Muslim faith is being challenged by new visions of radicalism and terrorism, resulting in once-familiar decorative Islamic designs, symbols and Middle Eastern calligraphy now evoking, for some, fear and suspicion. In Familiar I have created a series of images to demystify the ‘other’ by connecting recognisable Australian imagery with familiar emblems of geometric patterned tiles and golden prayer mats, offering the viewer an avenue to engage with and acknowledge Australia’s cohesive communities.
