War alters societies and art can document the lives lived and lost as well as gauge the change. The Middle East has been involved in war for centuries, but for nearly the past eight years, Syria has seen bombings, bloodshed, destruction, fatigue and the fragmentation of homes and families that have not been seen in the modern age of civilization. The Misplaced Math of Homes & Familiesbrings artists, David Najib Kasir and Alison Ruttan to collectively bring their paintings and sculptures, respectively, to convey the turmoil of a country in chaotic conflict. Kasir introduces the viewer to the bloodied and tired people and their shattered families. Ruttan invites you to the homes they abandoned with the ghosts of loved ones lost within the ruins.
