Riyadh Hashim

 

Riyadh Hashim believes that art can act as a witness, employing iconography drawn from a spectrum of cultural sources. Oftentimes his works are juxtapositions that take-up mixed events, the cultural development that occurs and the new definitions arrived at within the context of a new found home. His work he seeks to address broader social questions, questions concerning the identity of the self and how it is composed. Through art, he rebuilds and reconstructs processes and states of in-between, exhibiting unrefined works that invoke change, motion, and fresh concepts of life.
