“The ethos of geometry is what my art is concerned with. It led me to experiment with the written word, being the physical structure of sound, constructing new compositions and discovering new rhythms while liberating its form from the norm. By exploring the linkage between the finite and The Infinite, I am able to experiment with a higher level of spatial awareness. These layers of abstract forms can create endless perspectives, allowing new correlations to be defined, inspiring an inner dialogue between different dimensions and unfolding themselves as the viewer stands before them.” - Lulwah Al Homoud
