Zeina Kamareddine BADRAN, ‘Gauze I’, 2014, Art On 56th

At each throw of a net to sea bears the viands to the people of Tripoli
At each throw of a net into the air bears the roses of Tripoli
A canvas enveloped in white roses, and another enveloped in white roses, and another...
A canvas enveloped in mesh, and another enveloped in mesh, and another...
I conjure up the repetition in the city
“How am I to stop painting white roses when I bear witness to the wilting of new ones”
