Ghassan Zard

Whilst his sculptures initially appear playful, on closer reflection, they hint at something darker, as seen in his turtle-like figurative sculptures whose nodding featureless heads mark them as subservient and passive, as though caught in a trapping situation. Such gestures create an impression of violence or a tension hidden below the material surface.
