Meet Rola Kuidir, one of the artists featured in #musinterpreted exhibition at the Daniel Spectrum. Our show is up for the entire month of April so be sure to check it out and the closing reception is Thursday May 1st!
Rola, a recent graduate, works as a freelance designer and photographer. She opens her mind up to inspirations from all around her. She appreciates the beauty in everyone and admires different qualities that different people own. She takes most of her time brainstorming ideas. Rola does not have a step-by-step process when producing her stimulating artwork. Rola hopes to go back to school to do a post-graduate degree and learn advertising
in web-design, along with 3D imaging. For now, she enjoys working from her home and the flexibility it offers.
She allows her curiosity to lead her towards the discovery of new dimensions. She did not want to restrict herself to the two-dimensional realm. That is why she set up her composition at (mus)interpreted, “Lana,” as a three-dimensional cube. “Lana” is not confined to the concept of the “oppressed” Muslim woman. She is ready to punch, be silly and laugh. She is photographed with different styles of hijab that makes her identity fluid and refutes judgement. Rola wants the audience to come close and see people for who they really are, through all of the character’s different emotions. So no need to stand so far away and judge, come and join Lana’s quirkiness. Rola engages the audiences with “Lana” by moving her into the audience’s three-dimensional sphere.
