The DAAP Galleries are proud to present:
Scream and Beyond, a collection of prints by SAAD GHOSN
For the past two decades Saad Ghosn has been using his images as vehicles for his social views and political beliefs, and as a tool towards social change, peace and justice. Using black and white woodcut prints has allowed him to harness the direct, straightforward, and stark nature of the simplified image to convey his message.
Saad views art as a reflection of the artist in their entirety and, therefore, not only “for the sake of Art” but primarily “for the sake of the Artist”, “for the sake of the Artist’s Life” and “for the sake of Life” in general.
Art is potent and motivating, it can inform and challenge, and it can lead the viewer into thinking and into action. In this respect Saad strongly believes in “Art as Activism” and that art is a potent tool for affecting change towards a better world.
All works are by Saad Ghosn, woodcut prints on Rives BFK, 22.5" x 30"
