Artist Statement: This is a biomorphic pattern from a plaster carving in the Bahia Palace in Marrakesh. Biomorphic arabesque art is a visual crystallization of movement. A geometric framework balanced by cursive shapes represents the union of structure and flow. Rumi says that we are turned from one feeling to another so that we have two wings to fly, not one. Interweaving and repeating biomorphic patterns reminds us that we learn through opposites.
I am a novice in Islamic Geometry so still have lots to learn and explore. I cannot call myself an artist yet and share that platform with all the other extremely talented artists out here.Insha allah one day!
