As I ponder over my empty canvas waiting for my chosen tools to be guided by my heart and soul, more often than not, I enter a state of profound transformation. A state of healing, meditation, gratitude and spiritual ecstasy. A unifying principal binds religion and art. A key ingredient in both is worship, for art mirrors reverence in its contemplation and remembrance of God.
Art, like worship, should radiate and allow you to warm yourself if anyway cold. Art, like worship, can quench inner thirst and hunger. When we worship in spirit, we invite light to the soul. But make no mistake, Enlightenment is also a destructive process. It is not just about happiness. It is the crumbling away of the untruth. It is seeing through the façade of pretense. It is the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true… all while holding on to our faith.
I have tried to capture this thought in my painting, with the colors transitioning for light to dark and light again signifying the phases of our soul through life, enlightenment and worship. My fascination for Islamic architecture, mosques and the tranquility it brings me also inspired this specific creation. The use of the palette knife and its unique strokes allowed me to create a range of effects and textures to add depth and dynamism to this bold and expressive painting.
