My approach to painting involves improvisation, experimentation and making order out of chaos.  Instead of being confined to coloring inside the lines, I just react to previous marks; the way a jazz man might listen for the next note during an improvised solo.  Where "technique" is secondary to "feel".  I often hear my musician friends talking about "getting out of your own way" is the only way to improvise something genuine and on the spot.  Simply acting, reacting and deeply listening to what the composition needs.  I feel the same way about expressionist painting.  I welcome mistakes and accidents because sometimes they become the most interesting part of the piece.

Nabil Musa's Solo Exhibit

Nabil Musa's Solo Exhibit

Mousa (Nabil Mousa), b. 1966 in Syria. Lives and works in Atlanta, GA.

Born in Syria and raised in the United States, Mousa incorporates the cultural tensions of both countries into his practice, combining them with his own personal convictions. While earlier examples of his work strictly appropriate Middle Eastern and Mediterranean design motifs, more recent examples relax them, allowing for looser representations that symbolize his new life in the United States. Politics is omnipresent in Mousa’s work.

This is not to say, however, that personal struggle is in any way diminished for Mousa. Mousa’s vested interest in all aspects of life has been the common thread in all of his works. Raised in a conservative Christian household, Mousa is always pitting socio-religious oppression with self-realization, from his earliest works examining the Muslim niqab to his more recent series inviting Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike to come together in creative reflection over 9/11.
