‘Ghouta’ a countryside and suburban area in southwestern Syria that surrounds the city of Damascus. Through its alarming and harrowing circumstances the never ending chorus of power, bullying, war, human beings peeled of their right to preservation and their gift of life. Over and over again, pawns in another mans game. Identity, culture, truths destroyed for ego and ethnic cleansing. Unfortunately this scene, although is brimming with Syrian culture and history could be any war zone in time, past and present. Ghouta is used as a paragon. Repetition is a focus in much of my work and is no different here….the same old pattern. However I offer a solution regardless of any argument.
