Flag Days By Dahlia Elsayed

Apama Mackey Gallery says
to communicate quietly in a noisy world........

A suite of new flags that act as markers for the ambiguous and existential states of the modern world. Using bright colors and symbols on a rectangular field, the flags convey a range of possible conditions for use: a flag for analog days, a flag for peaking moments, a flag for planning escapes, a flag for silence.

Dahlia Elsayed is an artist and writer who makes text and image based work that synthesizes an internal and external experience of place, connecting the ephemeral to the concrete. She writes short fictions for created landscapes that take the form of narrative paintings and installations. Visually, the work pulls from conceptual art, comics, and cartography and uses symbols of hard data (flags, signs, borders, geologic forms) to frame soft data (wordplay, metaphors, lists, idioms) allowing image and language to continuously modify each other.
