This experience gave me the chance to notice that the prevailing public taste in the selection of decorations and paintings of Egyptian homes was similar in all the social and cultural levels, being mainly the classical landscape and subjects inspired by the classics characterized by a hue of mystery: the logic, the nature of the colors often do not reflect a specific time or place. Thus, the observer perceives a sort of non-temporal and non-spatial condition.
Furthermore, since 2008, I have been working on a project on the TV image as visual and conceptual source. This gave me the chance of exploring the construction and the relationship between the news written strips, the announcements, and the images in the background, which I re-drafted in drawings.
Links began to arise between the landscapes in classical paintings and the TV images I had seen. And I began to build dramatic scenes with characters in a series of mysterious paintings. Ahmed Sabry
