Uprising: Paint + Piano //
Uprising is a mixed-media painting by Sundus Abdul Hadi in collaboration with her sister, photographer Tamara Abdul Hadi, whose flying figures grace the work. Visuals go hand in hand with Stefan Christoff’s piano composition. “[This] is the second collaboration between myself and pianist Stefan Christoff (Keys of Return was the first),” Sundus says.
“Ultimately, this painting is a poetic rendering of Arab youth journeying into a brighter future…
souls that have lost their lives in the fight for collective freedom taking flight, and the living struggling — to make the impossible possible, and ultimate deliverance — if not in reality, then perhaps in dreams. It is Up-rising, rising up.”
