Palimpsest of History (Work on Paper; 2019)
Mixed-media collage art that accompanied my piece for VAN Magazine on music history’s Syrian roots, combining images of ancient and modern Syria, ruins of ancient Greece, and opera ephemera. Who controls our narrative origins? Where do the connective threads of history intersect? This series examines the way that ancient cultures traveled across the Mediterranean Sea — and why understanding those cultural overlaps matters for today.
