"The Space Between," now up at Galerie Tanit, explores intermediate spaces – whether a migration journey, or the distance between ancient civilizations and the present.The solo show consists of 14 works on paper by Syrian-Armenian artist Kevork Mourad, all completed in the last four years. It's through the region's historic remnants that Mourad hopes to highlight the distance between ancient civilizations and contemporary society, and how all that has been lost may yet be regained.Because Mourad combines so many different textures and figurative techniques within a single work, the viewer may find that a second glance completely alters their perception of a piece.As lines and forms move hectically across the three layers, the eye can't focus on one particular point. Architectural elements emerge, however, as human forms and textures resolve upon the surface of the work. The work depicts the history of Syria, the artist explained, beginning with the country's ancient sites and ending today. The central layer depicts the 1000 years that passed between ancient and contemporary Syria.
