Intimate Fears continues to delve upon foundational themes in the artist's oeuvre: the alienation of the individual, the yearning for nature, and the overwhelming power of systems - be they economic, political, or military. Grim and often morbid subjects in Sohel's artworks comprise weapons, (self) mutilations, and skulls of various types and shapes. But the viewer is not presented with the clichéd dramatic renditions usually associated with these motifs: the lines in Sohel's drawings are clear, and the finishing of his objects is immaculate. In this discrepancy lies the striking, powerful paradox of the artist's research; an apparent contradiction that gives poignancy to his works.
