Karim Ghidinelli's work is based on the idea of passage, journey and travel. Identity is naturally a part of the evolutionary process of the passage; the mark is embodied by Karim's distinctive trace on a page. His work documents the passage of others, but simultaneously assures him of his own journey. His technique is a myriad: From print, to portrait, to metal or oil these mediums are collaged into rich layers. His artwork is a reflection of our contemporary daily life where the politics of identity exist at the forefront. Ghidinelli, speaks of a desire to espouse a political identity while expressing its provenance or dissidence as life constantly reminds us of the inevitability of politics of identity.
