The Blind Spot, 2017



The Blind Spot is an collection of black ink drawings focused on portraits of ordinary people in the Syrian civil war. It consists of approximately 100 drawings, all sized 40 x 30 cm. The portraits are removed from their original background and as a whole the series is concerned with the vulnerability of the individuals trapped in a war.

The series started with the archiving of hundreds of photos from the news, social media and other sources of the day-to-day brutality. The choice of portraying mostly anonymous people from these pictures was to leave the spectacle out. The representation of suffering is isolated and dramatic. It happens to civilians, children, recruits and rebels alike.
