“…I dreamt that I was looking at my parents they were looking at their wedding picture. In My dream I was riding a bicycle with a fish over my head ….".
Observing Hussein’s works, one cannot help but relate his paintings to a deja vue dream or part thereof. Sinan, intentionally or not, seem to record dreams. His paintings are full of cyphers, languages and characters that we relate to but do not belong to this world. Limbs are crossed as an act of balance; cones are set in platform to identify personal space indicating “no Entry”. The characters are not lineal yet communicating. The expressions of the eyes spell a disposition. The scene looks familiar. Words are not legible. Tongues and lips are touching, hence a discussion. Man, animal and plant are unhinged.
He takes you into a dream. As it is in the nature of dreams, it always feels real. Some you want to be woken up from others you wish want to keep going. In his scattered random blots, he always makes you wake up to reality.
Is he sharing his dreams or is he reading yours?!
Whichever the case may be, one is left free to keep the interpretation to oneself
