This is a piece where I say in it the manifestations of the expression was faster to exist than the elements of execution, so it is a hold up between these two opposing sides, in mono colour full, half and sensitive degrees of impressions.
The poems are from the very rich and well-known reference in Arabic literature – Bahjat Al Majahis by Ibi Abdil Birr Al Qurtobi. The general meaning of the poems is as follows:
“If the status quo under what is supposed to be the judge, the advocate, the patrons of the unjust state of the world today, then it is only bad news for all these perpetrators from the absolute owner, judge, patron, and maker of all.”

This piece is about the power of the single stroke technique which Ali Omar Ermes employs as a hallmark of a number of his works.
It explores the vast richness of the Arabic language and the magnitude of the depth of expression in Arabic with the simplest and most direct method or as complicated as you wish.
