Re-entry 13X30 Pastel on paper
This work reflects a satellite image of Jebel Kissu, in northwestern Sudan, appearing as a comet from high above. The title refers to the artist's name for this image. The text on the work refers to first verse of the poem Beatitudes by Khaled Mattawa - How do you know when the sky says yes or no?
Khaled Mattawa - 1964-
My child wants to know if the mountains really cowered.
“How do you know when a sea or a river is afraid?
How do you know when the sky is thinking yes or no?
And why did Adam say yes—Did he know that
all the other creatures refused? Was he arrogant
or just ignorant? Was he God’s last choice?”
