Artist Statement

Me and Frida and Me BouquetEnam’s art tells of her lived, collective and spiritual experiences. The freedom to experiment with materials allows limitless expression, creating stimulating, sensory ways to tell stories.

Her art also promotes craft/ the handmade by incorporating embroidery, knit, print and wirework. We no longer value craft, and technology has caused communities craft once sustained to decline. The kinetic energy in the process of making merges and travels with it transmitting to those who come into contact – becoming part of their lived experience. This cyclical energy transference has healing powers that machines interrupted. By incorporating embroidery, knitting, wirework and weaving practices, Enam aims to restore this and revive craft’s status while also disparaging society’s increasing dependence on technology and consumerism.
