Dahlia Elsayed / SSCC


The Sticky Parts, 2011 by Dahlia Elsayed,
acrylic on paper, 60" x 155"

If you're looking for something to do this afternoon, I suggest heading over to South Seattle Community College in West Seattle to see the Northwest debut of Dahlia Elsayed who will be presenting new work in a show titled The Sticky Parts. The opening reception is this afternoon from 2-4pm.
Internationally respected artist Dahlia Elsayed pulls from conceptual art, comics, cartographyand landscape painting to explore the relationship between language and image. Her visual narratives are greatly influenced by her background. Three generations of her family have been forced to move many times to many places due to religious and political persecution. This has fostered a deep curiosity into how story shapes a landscape, and its inverse, how a landscape takes a mythic form in narrative. via
