Asad Faulwell in Artillery Magazine

Artillery Magazine, September 4, 2018

Asad Faulwell's portrait series has recenly been exhibited at DENK.

"Orientalist painting fantasies satirically intertwine with characters of anti-colonial resistance in “Les Femmes d’Alger,” Asad Faulwell’s ongoing portrait series recently exhibited at DENK. Drawing upon the rich legacies of Algerian War history, Islamic aesthetics and European harem paintings, Faulwell’s collage/painting hybrids critique the fatuousness of black-and-white moralism pervading messy situations where conflicting notions are so tightly entangled that no one can cleanly dissever truth from propaganda."
