Omar Al-Shams
Kansas City, MO

My work explores the relationship between the body and multimedia experiences. With influences as diverse as Munch and John Lennon, new synergies are distilled from both mundane and transcendent layers. Ever since I was a little one I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of the universe. What starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a hegemony of power, leaving only a sense of dread and the chance of a new beginning. As shifting replicas become transformed through diligent and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with a testament to the darkness of our world.
