For Tarek Mourad, it was the opposite. He went into his bathroom, found it a mess and thought he should clean it. Mourad's current exhibition "Rooms of neglect," now up at Artlab, is comprised of what he sees as "forensic study". He photographs bathrooms and repaints some of the black-and-white prints with red and white oil on canvas. While everybody uses toilets daily, Mourad believes they are still neglected rooms. He demonstrates a great talent for not just portraying ordinary scenes artistically, but imbuing normal bathroom scenes with distinct meanings and atmospheres.
