His art addresses notions of memory, exile and above all: healing. Srouji is known for his surface paintings. They stand apparently abstract; yet, they reveal physical scars of conflict, as they also address temporalities between: a past nostalgia, a precipitating present and a distant future and negotiate terms of engagement without pathos. The dispersion deployed onto the canvas is not only a material trace, but also the symbolic form of social phenomena that confirms the artist’s notes that “painting is a necessity” and his work is “always linked to the history of Lebanon and to the Middle East in general."
