The Dawn Break: Contemporary Islamic Artwork by Ali Omar Ermes


This beautiful painting "The Dawn Break" by Ali Omar Ermes has 2 noticeably striking strokes infused with a mix of stunning colours and effects.

Between the elements of colours and sound, it is self-evident that we have a state of comprehension, a state of wanting for new beginnings.

Poems featured in this painting include those by Qotam Ebni Khabeeh, known as Sullotan, advising his son in a storytelling manner about life and values, this piece of poetry has a very rare property of combining the deadliest serious of all matters in the most beautifully sweet and musically moving sounds. Where you forget that what you hear is so deadly serious and some times frightening about life and responsibility to the point of panic.

While you enjoy the art of language expression, just like what the Arabs call munching poison in sweet clear honey, and would that tell us anything about today’s world?

Reference: Abu Tammam’s book of selected poetry – Al Hamassah.

This artwork was produced in 2003, it is acrylic on paper, mounted on canvas and its size is approximately 150cm x 100cm. The artwork is in the collection of the Artist.

This artwork shows an unfamiliar way of executing the letter Qaff, which in some ways resembles the old Kufic script.

The texts are poems by Ahmed Shawqi about the very well known resistance Libyan leader Omar Al-Mukhtar who died in 1932. Omar Mukhtar is an Arab Muslim rebel who fought against the Italian conquest of Libya, just prior to World War II.
