About the Art Exhibition
A contemporary art exhibit by Syrian American and Syrian artists. The paintings are a sweeping survey of contemporary art that weaves together images of the physical world, memories, emotions, and the virtual world. Some of the artists emigrated to United States, Europe or neighboring countries, while others are still living and working in Syria and are professors of art at the Faculty of Arts in Damascus and Aleppo Universities.
While none of the works are political in nature, the influence of the war is reflected in the style and content in number of paintings. The works are a grand testimony of human suffering and survival whether spiritual or physical, especially in times of war. The artists are deeply rooted in their country’s rich cultural and artistic traditions and present expressionist styles of figurative and urban landscape.
