The Word (Al Kalimah)
''My interest in Islamic Art for this artistic project is driven by a desire to bridge the seemingly expanding gap between the Western, the Muslim and the Arab worlds. Through my art, I offer an artistic ''archaeology'', while carefully uncovering the multi-layered history and culture of great civilizations that seem almost completely overlooked in the current political turmoil.
The goal of my artistic project is to act as a set of symbolic resources for I strongly believe that art can contribute to a cultural rapprochement between East and West. Art can send powerful messages couched in non-political language. Art can foster understanding and empathy. Art can help construct positive alternatives. Art can recapture much of the complexity and richness - and therefore the truth - about the extraordinary Islamic and Arab civilization''.
