In the work Interlude, Hussein Salim’s densely layered painted surface imparts a sense of deep time – of civilizations rising and falling, of lives being lived and forgotten, of stories being inscribed, erased, and re-inscribed. This work is a palimpsest of the historical and the contemporary, the cultural and the personal.

“For me, art not only evokes memories and contemplation of the loss of home but it also encounters the present and shapes the future. My work is the product of a rich heritage from my origins in Sudan, my training there and my recent diasporic experience. As a Sudanese, my past and present are marred with memories of loss, isolation, migration, exile and forgotten heritage.”1
