BIO:

Sam Sundos is a Palestinian-American artist living and working in Brooklyn who expresses himself through various mediums. His work includes paintings, drawings, and hand-embroidered cotton/canvas tapestries. Sundos uses recurring characters throughout his art to explore themes of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and the duality of human existence. His paintings and drawings depict subjects that appear detached and apathetic, reflecting the fatigue seen in society. In contrast, his embroidered pieces often feature "dancing figures" and imagined landscapes, evoking a sense of unity and hope for the future. Through his art, Sundos seeks to convey the significance of human touch and the value of every human life.


STATEMENT:

“Let in Some Sky” presents the beauty in the juxtaposition of minimal design and the ornate slow craft. Taking the standards of beauty and inserting bold color and texture to an otherwise neutral world.

Sundos’ abstraction of traditional Palestinian embroidery techniques, based on his life time exposure to the craft, informs his character and thematic choices.

His dive into slow craft is driven by his awareness of the passing of time - a documentation of the slowness and intention we crave in a world fixated on immediacy.
