Acrylic on Unstretched Canvas
36" X 60" X 1/4"
In our networked world, Syed's paintings are a re-versioning of existing forms to inform our wider cultural environment. It's not only his own experiences, but also his place in time that leads him toward the remix. By bringing together deconstructed images into one singular image, Syed provides fresh perspective on social issues, economics, gender, and culture. Working mainly in acrylic, Syed uses brushstrokes to emphasize his emotions. He playfully bends time and space mixing artists, genres, styles, and iconography to re-write history. Syed aims to combine these ideas on his canvases by balancing abstraction, detail, and light.
