one of four statements, hand painted on wall by non-Arabic speaking U.S. artists’ hands

Artist Statement
I’m thinking here about touching your feeling. Like we touch each other or our skin, to feel the reality of existence. How we care about what we can’t see or how we feel it with our senses: to touch our souls, to understand our self language, to have the ability to treat our self. It’s the first step in our relationship with others.
