If I Were The US President Today (John Cantlie) III, 2016
Navine G. Khan-Dossos

Gouache on panel
25 cm x 35 cm x 1.5 cm

The Remaining and Expanding series comes out of the artist’s ongoing research into Islamic State propaganda, and in particular its online magazine Dabiq. Thirty-six panel paintings are constructed from the design and layouts of page-spreads from one issue; transformed – in the absence of their controversial contents – into pure form and colour so the viewer can consider the structures rather than content of propaganda. In these works, the matteness of gouache paint, in a palette of CMYK and RGB, translates the qualities of screen resolution into an analogue surface.
