Title: Exhale Size: 100 x 100 cm Inspiration: The other polarity, the opposite, the yang. Exhale, breathe out, release, expand, create, spread beauty. The predominant shape in this painting is the 8-pointed star, also know as the khatam. Each of the four opposite ends symbolise the four elements of nature; earth, fire, water, air. The previous painting (inhale) is symbolist of earth and fire. Exhale is a visual depiction of air and water. I like to leave interpretations to the viewer and see what emotions are evoked. Like In Inhale, the 99 names and attributes of Allah (SWT) are written here. Notice how they are apparent and not hidden. Allahs power is within and without, all around us and also inside us.
