Artist's description:

Verse: "Allahu Noor u samawati wl ard" Surah An Noor (The Light):35. Allah is the light of heavens and the earth. The Parable of His light ia as if there were a Niche and within it a Lamp: the Lamp enclosed in Glass: the glass shade is like a glittering star and lamp is lit with the olive oil of a blessed tree. which is neither eastern nor western: its oil is (so fine) as if it were going to shine forth by itself though no fire touched it (as though all the means of increasing) light upon light (were provided ); Allah guides to His light whomever He wills. He cites parables to make the Message clear to the people; He has perfect knowledge of everything. My work is representation of islamic culture. As an artist I wanted to fuse my philosophies, ideas. I introduced color and a freer flowing art form. I was also using text to look like texture in the paintings. I felt I had to make it my own and represent them visually. For me, every language is incredibly poetic and expressive. I am translating the rich meanings of the script though my contemporary calligraphy which is surrounded by bright and vivid paint. In all paintings, The calligraphic brushstroke was an approach to abstract painting that focused on the spontaneous gesture of the my hand and was informed by the Islamic calligraphy and Persian art. Painting medium is oil paints.
