Out of Chaos Comes Life

Art, Culture, Politics from International Zones of Conflict

About


About

Studio Resolution is designed as a not-for-profit corporation to create, promote and distribute works of art and multi-media documentaries as reflections of our contemporary history.

Importantly, the project is being developed to help support artists living and working in international zones of conflict. Their work created in bedrooms, temporary shelters, and on walls and rubble, represents a transient, totally fragile moment in history.

For the artists the work is being created as documentation of their condition, as a cry for recognition, as an emotional escape from the environments surrounding them, and, of course, for their personal creative expression.
