what the world does may not be worth doing, and yet it cannot be left undone
asmaa al-issa





Exhibition Dates: October 6, 2017 - November 30, 2017

what the world does may not be worth doing, and yet it cannot be left undone intersects Daoist philosophies and Islamic art practices. The work engages seemingly conflicting concepts to think through the transformative nature of the world as a creative process.  

The screen is used as a site of contradiction and opposition: curves are rendered on a grid surface and indeterminate moiré patterns proliferate out of linear grids, which overlap intentionally cut patterns. This work continues a line of exploration that draws on notions of spontaneity, chaos, and creativity.



asmaa al-issa

asmaa al-issa’s practice is heavily informed by art and philosophy of different spiritual traditions. Working in a range of media including drawing, photography, sculpture, and installation, asmaa maintains an art practice that contemplates what is affective but has no form. She recently received a Master of Fine Art in Interdisciplinary Studies from Simon Fraser University.
