Acid Fields by Shawki Youssef at Green

While waiting to get into a play, I sneaked a peek at Acid Fields by Shawki Youssef, exhibiting at Green Art Gallery in Al Serkal Avenue. Alluding to the conflicts currently simmering in the Middle East, he has drawn out imagery of the region and the victims in traumatized scratches of scorched black, colored mostly with sickly yellows. You can see the outlines of joints and limbs emerge from the chaos, as if twitching and contorted in pain.
