Speaks volumes!

Ahmed Mater Al-Ziad Aseeri may best be described as an illuminator of both form and ideas and a man of energy and few habits. Drawing on the duality of his existence as both artist and doctor, Mater’s work frames humanity within a palimpsest of religious symbols and scientific references.

A return to using science to express something for which there is no scientific solution is his work Magnetic.

Using the dual qualities of magnetism to both attract and repulse and playing on visual parallels with pilgrims circling the Kaaba, Mater seems to comment on relations of Islam with the world or on differences within the nation of Islam.

"No illumination without darkness. They need each other."
- Ahmed Mater
