Artist's Description

The word khaliya, pl. khalâya, from a root which means “void, empty space”, refers to the cell, both in the body or in the beehive. It is a close relative to khalwa خلوة, the monk’s cell or hermit’s retreat. The beehive is the dominant note for this modular piece, which evokes simultaneously the cells filled with honey and the flowers that provided it. The geometry is relieved by the irregular gradation of the colours and by the variation within each hue. At the centre, an empty space reminds us of the core meaning of the word; the whole piece is in itself one cell.
