Perpetual | Mobeen Akhtar

Write a review

By Mobeen Akhtar

‘Perpetual’ was one of the first Illumination paintings I completed. The central pattern extends out and is framed within golden and coloured borders. Inspired by the Mamluk Qurans the pattern is shown to have the possibility of continuing beyond its borders, and therefore lends to the endless repeating aspect of a geometric pattern.

This everlasting perception is a quality and attribute of the Creator of all things and represents his eternal existence. The central point of this geometry is where you find the Creator in relation to his creation. All the patterns that are seen extending from this point is a representation of how all of creation come from Him alone.

The original painting was donated in 2019 to Europe’s first eco-friendly mosque, Cambridge Central Mosque.
