Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts

Shaan Syed

London, England

Shaan Syed’s conceptual practice plays with various modes of painting, speaking to both abstract and expressionist traditions. Primarily through painting, yet also incorporating screen-printing, sound, and performance, Syed addresses the idea that painting may be at once a process, a reveal, and a sign. He connects the relationship between the historically unconnected yet aesthetically similar movements, traditions, and commercial enterprises. While at Bemis he will explore the contemporary problem of place and aesthetics; discrepancies and similarities that have personal resonance in order to find new ways of reading and painting abstraction through a new body of paintings.
