Donia is a fine artist whose illustrative work explores the ideas of altered mental states, personal-psychological conflicts, and one's connection to the universe while questioning concepts of love and existence. A surreal context of human connection and mental stability is expressed through depictions of vignetted figures, drawn hovering in off-kilter voids.
“I am fascinated by the psychology of humans and their perception of reality. I tend to explore the brain's ability to manipulate ourselves and those around us in all states of mind, whether due to psychosis or otherwise. Additionally, how humans often lay their emotions to blame on another organ, the heart, which only exists to pump blood and keep us alive”
For Voyager, Donia presents a body of work that is not only representative of her journeys but, about the human race overall as voyagers through time, space, and consciousness, from space dust to microbe, to monkey, to the drug-consuming, selfie-taking, internet surfers of today. Additionally, the title Voyager gives homage to the Voyager Space Program which helped Earthlings view and explore the outer planets for the first time and are the first man-made devices to leave our solar system.
