ادْعُونِي أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ
The main piece of calligraphy is from Quran 40:60 "Call upon Me; I will respond to you." The two metallic squares to the right contain the al-Mughniy (The Enricher) and al-Hakeem (The Decisive One, or the Wise One) attributes of Allah SWT.
From the artist:
The 99 Most Beautiful Names is an installation that proved quite difficult to capture with a lens.
The artwork itself is a futile attempt in trying to make physical my understanding of these beatutiful names.
As humans though we seek to rationalise and make tangible concepts in order to gain a better understanding or a clearer picture.
Our Lord is beyond understanding or comparison yet He wishes us to recognise him, his qualities, his attributes. It is is through this search that hopefully we grow closer to Him...
