This series explores traditional Judaeo-Arabic maxims from the 2,000 year old Jewish community of Syria. Each painting pairs a phrase with a contemporary location or issue, giving the old words new and layered meanings while exploring the cultural overlap that Arab Jews represent. Each representational painting was created on location, and each place was chosen for it's application of the phrase in the artist's lived experience. The phrases can often have surprising and insightful applications to contemporary realities.
