Artist's Description

The word ‘amâ’ عماء means a “thin and subtle cloud” (or “heavy clouds” according to other sources) and is closely related to the word for “blindness”: it evokes a mist, real or metaphorical, in which nothing is clearly visible. The Cloud corresponds to “the first dense, transparent, luminous mass,” the “vapour of the Compassionate” البخار الرحماني exhaled by God, in other word the divine Breath. This Breath is the first of two steps of creation: By breathing out, the Divine releases the realities of the world, confined in a state of potentiality, into the divine imagination, before the second step — the utterance of the creative Word, Kun — gives them forms and an outer existence.
