‘Dildo Series’ 2008

Featured here are a series of dildo drawings, part of an ongoing series that explores the anthropomorphic qualities of this rather incongruous subject matter. By placing the dildo in unusual settings the dildo takes on new meanings in a sexual and social context. This idea may also take inspiration from Salvador Dali and Surrealism, which is a movement aiming to “resolve the previously contradictory conditions of dream and reality.” Islam has placed the object in an unusual setting, thus creating a fantasy-like scenario or new landscape, which pushes the boundaries of what we know as reality, in comparison.
