#In different periods of my work, I have made use of both visual elements of Islamic Art and the understanding of a traditional artist, combined with a new visual conception. My reference to past is for opening a horizon in the present. Symmetry and asymmetry, transparency and opacity and symbolism of forms and colours all create a spiritual atmosphere that my works try to capture.

Boat Raising Sails

Synopsis

This is the story of hopeful longings and empty dreams. Of how easy it seems to catch a prize in good times and on favorable winds. And yet, how swiftly the dream turns into a nightmare when it is like a solitary sail flailing alone in a distant landscape which we wishfully raise, not mindful that it was part and parcel of some woefully hapless ship, run aground, far, far away.
