Rasha Omar at Jan Kaps


Paintings of the memory an 11 year old boy killed by bomb during the Syrian war. The uselessness of painting tragedy to duel the tragedy of useless death. Or is it to try and void the uselessness of both. Protect the paintings protect the memory. Your beneficence becomes an act of preservation, intertwining memory with show, purchase. For only the price of cup of coffee a day you too can keep this boy's memory hanging. Intertwining or conflating painting with a candle in darkness.
