About The Work

The figures in Alsoudani’s work are often described as “bestial,” a term that takes on a new literal meaning in this hand-painted etching. Untitled (2012) is a departure from both the fleshy tonality and graphic war imagery of the artist’s larger paintings. Minute detail and a cartoonish style create a layered puzzle of figures, set against the gestural brushstrokes of light wash. The juxtaposition of organic texture and jarring abstraction have become a trademark of Alsoudani’s work, a means through which the artist dissects the trauma and carnage of violence. Elements of Cubist fragmentation permeate this practice, elevating the content of the work from scenes of shock and awe to poignant, multi-faceted depictions of the physical and psychological chaos of war. Alsoudani created this intaglio etching during his second collaboration with Wingate Studio.
