= means ‘Family’ in Arabic.
As I had originally intended my ceramics to be very conceptual, and full of meaning, I also want to transfer those same concepts into my paintings.
I wanted to paint Arabic and the various languages of the countries affected onto the appropriate ceramics, saying fact such as “63.91 million persons of concern globally…” or even synonyms for different family values, like – “security”, “comfort”, “kindness”…
As of now, it makes sense to include these somewhere, but to be more specific towards each painting. So perhaps attributing a unique family value to the title or piece description, or even making individual painted signs out of wood to accompany the paintings themselves.
Here are some examples:
Loyalty in Arabic – وَفاء
Guidance in Urdu – رہنمائی
Comfort in Pashto – ارام
Faith in French – Foi
