Call of the Beloved

Call of the Beloved

 

A 'Beloved' is one who continually utters momentous and commendable words and whose aim is kindness and goodwill. He is one who is the bearer of constructive and joyful tidings and is the creator of life. Poets and Prophets are true Beloveds of society as they, with constructive and creative words, cause the minds of beings to be nurtured and led forth through their guiding path. They raise the awareness of ordinary citizens when those citizens are heedless in slumber. I treasure these teachers and for this reason entitle them 'the Beloved'. I have incorporated many of their words in my pieces and this is why I have chosen to call this exhibition Call of the Beloved. In this exhibition, writings from Khayium, Hafiz and Baha’u’llah - the prophet founder of the Baha’i Faith - have been delicately woven into the artwork.
