Uncommon Terrain explores place from an abstract perspective. Each of the works included is anchored in a physical material or in a collective history that is transcended by personal perception, intuition, and embodied experience. The page, the canvas, or the gallery itself stands in for the landscape of the mind. The works are the tangible manifestations of a journey of discovery to understanding the self through contact with the other. Using painting, drawing, sculpture and photography, these five artists reveal something about themselves as well as the viewing audience-the places we have been, the people we have met, and the terrain we have traversed both physically and mentally.
Uncommon Terrain features works by Sherin Guirguis, Sanaz Mazinani, Amir H. Fallah, Elham Rokni and Galia Linn.
