Fatima TuziahrahPainting/Drawing | she/her ︎
My artwork explores the art of prayer in Islam. I combine abstract art with Arabic calligraphy to showcase an interpretation of the process of prayer combining the use of white charcoal and acrylic paint. I blended these elements together to showcase its beauty, energy and the movement within prayer. I wanted my artwork to mesmerize even those who could not read it. My paintings portray movement, the way the Arabic letter forms interact with one another. Within these spiritual letters is something much more meaningful which one has to read in between the lines to uncover. These Arabic letters have the power to transform the world we live in through close, continued reading, and meditation and repetition of prayer.
