Piers Secunda's work on display at Houston University

University Of Houston, Houston (Clear Lake Campus)

The ISIS Paintings exhibit created by British artist Piers Secunda were on display in the University of Houston-Clear Lake (UHCL) Art Gallery. The sculpture-like paintings were created using casts of ISIS bullet holes and power tool damage from destroyed historical sites in Iraq.

The exhibit shows the damage to images caused by competing ideas and war. The practice of iconoclasm goes back centuries with ISIS’s participation being the latest example.

The exhibition ran from 22 July 2019 – 18 December 2019.
