Exploring heritage and homeland through various mediums, Palestinian-American artist Jordan Nassar (b. 1985, New York, NY) has rooted his artistic practice in traditional levantine craft forms. He adapts Palestinian tatreez embroidery (a patterned geometric cross-stitch) to reflect his hybrid upbringing and collaborates with craftswomen in the West Bank to create contemporary works. A self-taught artist, Nassar's embroideries juxtapose regional motifs with imagined landscapes in a way that breaks with and expands upon the thousands of years old tradition. His practice is rooted in a linguistic and geopolitical field of play characterised both by conflict and unspoken harmony.
