Experimenting with different mediums enables El Hoyeck to express her deeper thoughts, ideas and vision in an aesthetic and more personal way. Having participated in several exhibitions in Lebanon, the mixed-media artist works mostly with painting, sculpture, installation, and assemblage. In her series Knitted Memory, she conducted an ambitious cathartic process in which she made use of handmade knitted pieces, patterned cloths and hammered nails on a wooden surface. Undone, cut, and transformed, the materials witnessed a transformation, losing their initial function and adopting a renewed sense of space, movement, contrast and time.
