Tarek aims at a “second hand” look of the quotidian domestic scenes by drawing, or painting straight from a photograph. This allows for a forensic view into what he calls “Rooms of Neglect” a crime-scene view of our familiar private places. These bathroom scenes, although not personally ours, have this uncanny similarity to our own bathrooms; that we use every day. This familiarity is specifically in the neglect that these rooms suffer from and per se, are reflected directly upon us. The result are paintings and etchings that have a direct connection to their origin in the photographs of random bathrooms that could be ours, the unknown as our very own.
