Sharif Waked, ‘Jamal al Mahamil (Camel of Hardships)’, 2106, Gallery One

Jamal al-Mahamil converses with modern Palestinian iconography, the famed painting, Jamal al Mahamil (The Camel of Grievances, Suleiman Mansour, 1973). The absencing of the barefooted carrier lifting the weight of Jerusalem on his back gives way to an image that erases the city with gold dots.
