All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,
“You owe me.”
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.
From The Gift: Poems by Hafiz. An English rendering by Daniel Ladinsky of poet Hafiz’s work.
Light upon Light’
In her collection, Aamina hopes to capture the tangible manifestations of the spiritual realities in divine revelation, namely the original sources of light—the sun, the moon and the stars.
“Sunsets like bonfires—dazzling, magnificent and all-consuming; The light that brings the dawn, quietly hopeful;
A dusky purple twilight, littered with a million silver stars;
A waxing, waning, full moon—ever-present;
Hear the song of creation in the rhythmic harmony of God’s light; A mirror of the unseen.”
She hopes that her art is a reminder of nature’s everyday grandeur and the fundamental place they occupy as the source of all our artistic expression. These orbs provide us with a guide to understanding time, navigating space on Earth, bringing us closer to realizing our Source. Her collection is also a reminder of a Universe that is beyond Earth, yet to be explored.
