Description

The landscape depicted here is based on a photograph of a region of Wadi Rum‚ in Jordan. I loved the warm colours and the dreamy atmosphere. The panels of ornament/details overlapping or jutting in from the edges of the canvas stem from Arabic ornament. They were utilized with the intention of creating a sharp‚ intricate contrast to the richness and flow of the rock formations.
Very fine 000 brushes were used to create the intricate Arabic ornament.
The platform in the bottom-left corner has been placed so as to give the effect of one standing upon it and gazing across the vastness. It also establishes a smooth‚ modernist touch (as‚ also‚ the vertical beams/poles) in contrast to the ancient history indicated by the Arabic ornament and the archaic quality of the desert.

The left and right sides of the image actually feature a thin black border to emphasise the sense of this image being like a film still.
The left and right sides of the canvas are painted gold.
