"Multilayered topographies, kaleidoscopes of color, texture, line, pattern reveal qualities of inner worlds as a call to know ourselves beyond our outer profiles. I photograph, cut, collage, print the completed portrait onto wood to incorporate its natural grain. Shining a light on self reflection, self awareness and connection to beauty within increasing our capacity to see beauty in everyone else. We all want to be seen, want to belong. In our variety and connection we rise ever better."—Soad Kader
ABOUT THE ARTIST
San Francisco based multi-cultural, multi-racial artist Soad Kader creates colorful mixed media silhouetted profile portraits depicting a diversity of faces. Her art is informed by her own journey navigating the in-between spaces of mixed identity to share an expansive view of beauty and belonging.
Taking inspiration from the ancient portraits and rich color palettes of her Egyptian heritage, quotes and work by powerful women Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche, Tracee Ellis Ross, Julie Mehretu along with artists of her formal art training with Wayne Thiebaud, Squeak Carnwath and Manuel Neri, Soad creates work to envision conversation and listening, both with self and others to expand connection, open hearts and minds to our shared humanity.
