Nostalgia | Jamal AlYousif

    $publication->pub_name; ?>

 

 

It is the bitter-sweetness of nostalgia that drives Jamal Al Yousif’s work.  In seeking to forge an intimate, personal connection with his audience, Al Yousif opts for the unlikely medium of glass. Brittle and fragile, it nonetheless reflects Al Yousif’s attempt at preserving the ‘unconscious warmth one gets from nostalgia.’ In giving form to that nostalgic feeling, Al Yousif hopes to preserve his memories and the feelings that they evoke in him, something that he feels becomes more elusive with time.
