Ummi

Ummi
© 2008 Aref Nammari

" Ummi " is Arabic for my mother. This is work in progress. A photograph of a piece of calligraphy I am working on. The calligraphy--for the initiated this is the Diwani script--is pastel and conte on paper. The background is blue. In photoshop I superimposed a textured background but maintained the color tones.

Calligraphy in general, and in particular Arabic and Chinese is the source of endless inspiration for beauty and art. I like that combination between the warm and cold colours adding that of course to the beauty of the curve. I wish I could do some calligraphy. My handwriting is horrible!

Yes you are right calligraphy in Arabic, Chinese and Japanese cultures is not necessarily used for writing but is an artistic expression--an endless source of inspiration as you say. So you don't really have to have a beautiful handwriting to begin with but a sense of proportion. Also practice makes perfect :)
Thanks for your comment Firas.

Excellent interpretation Rafal. It is along the same lines I was thinking when I made this piece. It is supposed to be the expression of my love and longing to see my mother whom I haven't seen in twenty years (a very long time and a long story mainly having to do with me not being able to go back to Jerusalem where I was born and where she still lives)
