Is it possible to faithfully translate the elements of visual art into words? How then is one to encompass a visual artist’s thoughts and actions into a statement? Self-awareness requires the ability to imagine and dream, especially to a person engaged in the process of artistic creation. To articulate in words a visual aesthetic experience is to script the dream and border the reach of the image. No longer would the forms come to life, nor would the colours convey the complexities of the visual field. As an artist, I often employ a vocabulary of interlocking geometrical motifs originating in Islamic art to the representational realm of figurative art forms. This fusion of Islamic and Western approaches imparts a sense of guided movement conferring urgency and physical involvement, and heightens the awareness of spatial depth. This combination generates artwork that has a vivid impact even at a distance and yet engages the viewer in an intimate visual and intellectual experience. My desire is to communicate a coherent unity of concept and percept by bringing the viewer’s unique experience to a set of integrated elements. These elements include specific characters of light, shadows, textures, lines of tension, placement of colours, and an attitude towards life conveyed by the whole.
