Kamal Boullata :- PALESTINE

Born in Jerusalem in 1942. Works and lives in Washington, Morroco and Paris.

Boullata recalls sitting for hours on end as a small boy in front of the Dome of the Rock, engrossed in sketching its innumerable and unfathomable geometric patterns and calligraphic engravings. Those patterns he saw as a child still echo endlessly throughout his adult work. I keep reminding my self that Jerusalem is not behind me, it is constantly ahead of me.
