OVERWHELMING

1998 - 2000

The collection Damascus Overwhelming is an homage to the artist’s homeland, a series of nine paintings that capture the people, architecture, sounds, smells, and vibrancy of that ancient metropolis. The collection was never exhibited in its entirety in a single venue, but individual pieces were shown at the Latakia Biennale in 1997, Artuel Beirut and the Al Shaab Gallery in 1999, and the Syrian Annual Art Exhibition at the National Museum just prior to the artist’s move to Dubai in early 2000.
