A Time To Reflect

Cards - 'The Garden'

I think I have mentioned that The Garden is one of the key concepts I have been working on within my art. In the last 3.5 years the meanings in my work have changed so much that even I raise my eyebrows when I look back and read what I had said in 2004 and 2005 about tranquilart. I guess my art is a response to my circumstances: it was so back then and is so now too.

In the last few days I have been reviving my relationship with media to have a physical manifestation of the mighty thoughts which are being processed within me.

Here is the result: this is a floral motif which represents man's yearning for Paradise. Stitched by hand, it reflects the centrality of deeds which play a vital role in attaining that celestial abode. Some of you may recall the Circles of Knowledge theme when seeing this.. yes.. there is a link between the two.

Blank Cards @ £1 each.

Wudu Research -Volunteers Wanted!

I am hoping to conduct some research into the Effects of Wudu.
Yes that's correct.

Partially inspired by the work of Farouq Molloy's 'Protection' piece [See final image on this beebs piece here], it's something my interest has gradually increased in, over the last couple of years. I wrote a little piece whilst in Pakistan in Spring 2006.

Don't worry it's not as invasive as it sounds.. for now it would suffice to say that this commitment would not take up more than a few minutes of your time on a daily basis for a period of 2 to 3 weeks.

If anyone is willing to help me in this little project, I would love to hear from you. If you can email me on
tranquilart @
I would be very happy. Please mark the subject as 'Wudu Research'.

Alternatively leave me a comment here: they are moderated so I can extract the email and delete the message. Whatever suits thee.

I have set a deadline for finding subjects for 31st January 2008. Thereafter I shall email everyone with what it is I require them to do. It is then up to you whether you wish to remain part of this investigation or say farwell. My only request is that you agree not to have any questions answered until February as I usually have a backlog of emails and also because of the temperament of my wrists.

The findings of my research will not name subjects so rest assured.

In the interim I request your prayers and wishes. Many thanks.

All are welcome.

Hope to hear from you soon :-)

Peace & Prayers,
taslim as
Bint-eh Adam
