Gallery Opening: “Syrian Migration Series”

“Syrian Migration Series”

an exhibition by

Helen Zughaib

Syrian Migration Series #1, gouache and ink on board, 12” x 18″© Helen Zughaib

In her most recent work, Zughaib creates a series of paintings inspired by the narrative paintings of Jacob Lawrence’s Migration series from 1940-1941, a visual record of the great migration of African Americans from the south to the north.

Zughaib’s “Syrian Migration Series” begins with the initial uprisings of the “Arab Spring” and its aftermath, the Syrian civil war and subsequent displacement of millions of people and a following refugee crisis that continues to affect the Arab world, Europe and the United States.
