Artist Statement
1994 marks my first experience of working with coal on paper with an adhesive facet and a non-adhesive facet (sticker). I used powder charcoal and not fingers. I adapted to use it randomly inside the blank space. I tried to deal with it from the outside while adding other kinds of ground powder of other materials such as coloured oxides like red, green, white…etc. till I achieved the presented form.Forms began to develop gradually till I achieved the integrated experiment through placing a group of photographic pictures to form another element containing the work as the black form was extremely abstract. Through the different photographic pictures, work started taking another form of display. I started presenting through the drawing work a content form that contains new formative meanings. For example, the work I performed in Cairo’s 8th International Biennale in which I obtained a special prize was through a mural drawing work whose area was 10 meters X 2.50 meters.

Hence, the experiment began to become coherent and the drawing work or the drawing painting in white and black became taking an expressionistic abstract form. In the work presented in Cairo’s Biennale. I attempted to throw light at the forms of chains in which the thirds world societies live in the Middle East. Therefore, I attempted to collect a number of journal pictures expressing features of prosecution and torment which the developing countries suffer by occupation and the injustice of major countries. The work was produced entitled black masses and white freedom and it was an Installation Drawing work
