I have many ideas I want to work on, responding to the environment and place I am living in now... To begin, I have started on a series of charcoals of Arabic Script, Naskh script. I am mostly interested in the fluid & poetic shapes of the script, taking what is small & detailed and presenting it out of context, strong , defiant, bold, beautiful, the delicate & strong juxtaposed, the mood & light they are seen in..
Many years ago I used to make a lot of art work around ancient script, so it feels like I have returned home in some ways...
