The Un-Contoured Speaking Up


Blood is actively being spilled in the Yarmouk Camp, and blood is actively shooting out. This is not blood not calling for innocence. This is peace speaking for itself, reaching beyond not just for the murdered.

Fadi Abou Hassan has combined the painterly texture of the uncontoured red with the figurative elements of the dove and barbed wire. Note the discreet greying of the lowest of the barbed wires to underline that we are all caught up in it.
