Field of Activity

Painting
"Every time I paint, I realize that I am at one with all creatures, in other words, with the whole universe, with every possible kind of existence. I stand outside myself then and become a part of that creative process which spews out paintings like a volcano spews out rocks and lava, purified from the body I inhabit."
Fahrünnissa Zeyd
