Ancient Socotra Camel 2019 Mixed Media on canvas and wooden panel 120 x 150 cm - Al Dhafra Camel Club

This work I created in my art residency in Abu Dhabi Al Dhafra Camel Festival. It is made out of a recycled wooden panel from Abu Dhabi, sand from the desert in Liwa, a woolen scarf made by lovely women from Socotra, who had their handcraft stand next to us, and wooden pieces for incenses from the Boswellia tree in Socotra, Yemen, are inserted in the art work. The camel is in peace with its self surrounded by the warm sun, the light orange desert sand and the sea of the amazing island Socotra.Cave Arabic ancient drawings, like the petroglyphs found in Eriosh in Socotra of camels decorate the wooden body of the camel.

The correlation is that bold black and white stripes cool zebras by creating convection currents in the air around the animals' bodies. That is, air moves faster over sunlight-absorbing black stripes and slower over white stripes to create cooling airflow, a zebra air condition and at the same time a camouflage.

Gazelle Abu Dhabi

Sculptures Animals

Move on Calmly United

Appreciated for its grace the gazelle is a symbol most commonly associated in Arabic literature with female beauty. My gazelle is carrying three women of three continents, Africa, Europe, Middle East, which are comfortably united on a sofa.Three heads, touch each other interchanging ideas, emotion and friendship. The union allows to push forward projects with the light speedy dancing rhythm of the gazelle, Flowing clearly like the water.

 

The Gazelle

By Rainer Maria Rilke 

Enchanted one: how can the harmony of two

Latin words ever attain the rhythm

that ripples through you like a promise.

From your brow rise leaf and lyre.

And all that is you turns to metaphor

in love poems whose phrases light

as rose petals remain in the expression

of one who, after reading, closes her eyes

to see you: almost in flight,

borne away in leaps that cease their springing

only when you stand stock still to listen;

as when a woman bathing in a woodland stream

pauses suddenly, and the water

mirrors her quick-turned face.
