"Perhaps the changing fabric of society, by turning one’s private sentiments, feelings and idea of beauty into a shopping endeavour/adventure concerns the artist, who juxtaposes the roses (made like a product) with the bar code at the bottom of the imagery in several of her works. However Asmaa, with her strong and sensible position on these issues, approach her work in a seductive manner. Both her mixed media prints and digital works delineate the artist’s pleasure in producing these works. Lines drawn on the prints, layers of silk screens and sharp cuts on the etching plates reveal a hand that takes a great delight in mark making. Her lines and even the process of stitching pieces of cloth in the pattern of a quilt, indicate that the artist is fascinated with the possibility and potential of fabricating a world through her tools and medium."
