Artist's Statement: ...And when, from behind her veil, an eyebrow peaks out, Angels play that rainbow and your fingers snap. - Rumi (1075 CE, in the Kolliyaat-e Shams-e Tabrizi)
Inspired by the diffused and ethereal glow suffusing the interiors of the Nizamuddin Chisti Dargah at Fatehpur Sikri, we find gleaming tinsels of light, gold and silver, filtering through the intricate geometries of triangles, hexagons, dodecagons - the sublime manifesting itself through the interweaving of these sacred geometries. A vibrant cosmic energy is feeling playful and wants us to participate in the dance of the universe. But our third eye remains closed. The energy speaks, but we barely see the forms, and do not perceive a speech that is beyond any spoken words. As the geometry bursts into myriad colours, we see a rainbow, but fail to recognize the aura which surpasses all colou₹ With our feeble and faltering grasps of the immanent, the aura is just beyond our comprehension. We do not surrender, and therefore we do not understand. “He is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent, but for us this forever remains the screen behind which He sits.”
