Transformation reflects on the spatial changes in the private and public spaces in the city how they vanish. Gentrification consumed the small green areas in the city of Ramallah and destroyed many old buildings. An investment behavior that adds to our devastating experience in the colonized and segregated territories in Palestine.

Inass Yassin mixed media paintings overlay different architectural and natural features such as windows, room, trees and the horizon line. Mixed media paintings makes large-scale, gestural works that are built up through layers of acrylic paint, printed photos, charcoal,  pencil drawings, pen, and ink on wood panels. Using the same idea of construction and deconstruction, layers were built and peeled off, conveying the layering in space and compression of the time.
