Surah Fatiha- The Beginning. As an artist, I have noticed that each of my paintings transition through many of my different moods, emotions and multifaceted personality. Throughout the process of creating this painting in particular, I was required to slow down, take a breath, ponder, and build up the layers whilst reflecting upon the meaning and significance of the Quranic verses calligraphed on the canvas.
In the name of god, the Most Gracious, Most Merciful Praise be to god, sustainer of all worlds Most Compassionate, Most Merciful Master of the Day of Judgement Thee do we worship, and thine aid we seek Guide us along the Straight Path the Path of those on whom hast thy grace, not of those who have earned your wrath, and who have gone astray. These verses, from the first chapter of the Quran, are essentially a prayer, that upon reciting create a strong desire in the heart of the reader to seek guidance, acceptance and enlightenment from the Lord above.
To capture the depth and rich meaning of these verses, I attempted to create a realistic and vivid work of art using the layering techniques, applying one layer upon the other until I achieved the desired result. This allowed me to add different textures, color shifts, immerse calligraphy fonts and motifs of Islamic architecture, suggesting deeper meaning and inviting a connection between the background and writing. Layered elements in artwork can stimulate creative thinking or reach into the subconscious mind to reveal personal meaning for each viewer.
