“Here, the slowly accumulating trickle of blood can be read as the artist’s own view of an ongoing commentary about her own work, with its attempts to pin down her psychological and existential experience using a succession of categories: female, exile, Middle East. Only in the final image, when the flow of blood has stopped and the artist enjoys a casual cigarette, can we catch the sound of her own self identification I am an artist.” (Glenn Harcourt/ The Artist, The Censor and the Nude/ Doppelhouse Press/ Los Angeles/ 2017/ page128)
