Winged

The work questions the concept of disappearing of the body or features for the light. An attempt to appreciate the aesthetics of the human figure as body for the soul, in a spiritual expression taking the audience beyond the daring nature of the nude photography.

 

Light was both graphically represented, and utilized in its physical sense, as the art works were printed on multiple transparent backlit sheets, layered against light boxes, and installed in a light free space.

 

The images present digitally manipulated photomontages, lighting effects, Arabic and English type, in addition to experimenting with Shodo (Zen calligraphy).
