About

Artist's Statement: "My paintings are an attempt to synthesize and enlighten pursuits of eastern and western art and their traditions. Using the full visual language of abstraction – color, shape, line, mark, and texture - I merge the traditions of Islamic pattern and abstract expressionism and thereby consciously cross boundaries of culture, history, religion, race, ideology and politics. In this manner I attempt to “tell the story” of culture, politics, and humanity in this time and place. As Picasso said of ‘Guernica’, “The importance of the painting is not the illustration of an event. The painter does more than document. It should have the same value to a blind man, for a painter paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen. It should transcend the moment."
