These pieces constitute the artist's life's work, which has been preoccupied with the depictions of human suffering.The right portion of the painting presents similarly frail and distorted female figures, enclosed within the same colorful confines. The faces of these figures are, by contrast, devoid of defining features or expression. Although most figures in Nseir's work appear feminine, she insists that she is more concerned with the portrayal of suffering from a humanistic standpoint rather than a gender-specific one. The work in "Creatures" speaks to human suffering in multiple languages and forms, but with a consistently brutal sincerity.Leila Nseir's "Creatures" is on display at Mark Hachem Gallery until April 2 .
