2 works on prayer ( salah ) times

 

” Prayer times in turquoise ” . A3 – collaged drawings in watercolour crayon & gold paint .

 

” Prayer times in purple & pink ” . A3 – wrapping paper , drawings in watercolour crayon & gold paint .

These are 2 more mixed media pieces – essentially collaged because I feel at home with the technique . I’ve had the chance to gather together small hexagon sketches I like which are linked by colour .

As to the subject : there are 5 compulsory prayer times for Muslims but there is an optional 6th at night for the most devout . Thus I have done work on both pentagons -which can be built up into dodecahedra ( 3D ) – and hexagons which joined together form a continuous flat surface . The gold writing is the names of the different times of day enjoined for prayer . I would like to make dodecahedra in clay – the one combination I have not done yet !
