The Ketab series is entirely constructed with individual strips of paper which are hand painted and rolled into circular forms creating rings of colour that whirl across the surface. Fluid in their movement, an abstract language emerges that is repetitive and rhythmic. I am drawn to the relationship between the parts and the whole, to the interplay of materials, of surface and depth, and the possibilities of tension and movement.
The present work comprises of rolls of paper filled with the word Eshgh, which means love in Farsi."
