Tahir is an is taken from a detail of an image from the Arab Spring demonstrations in Cairo.
My work has moved on and I attach an image 'Where Ends Meet' (acrylic on foamex board)
This is an interesting ghostly image, sharing some concerns with your other photographic work. But in some obvious ways it’s quite different. The lack of photographic clarity or specificity arguably imparts a moodier quality to the portrait, as it its dissolving within the layered color washes. The linear striations moving vertically through the face suggest the grain pattern of wood, or another organic support. While the warm analogous hues are pleasing, the expression is vaguely alarming; or at least unsettling. But in some ways it could be said this image also has a more direct or singular expression. Rather than sandwiching negatives which create interesting through visually disparate juxtapositions, this piece exists entirely on its own. I’m curious about the scale of the work, as the fluid shapes become more abstract when pulled away from the human subject.
