I have looked at this a long time and I could look at it more. The parts connect in many different ways, I have found. I like that. Rivers and realms are all roads in our life passages, as is the struggle to pass from winged insect to winged angel or winged horse for that matter. So many combinations in a life.
the muse... sometimes it curls up and goes to sleep like a headless cat [link] ... other times it prowls around yelling like a cat that has been fed but has nameless needs... you try to grab it to put it outside and it runs under the bed and crouches there peering out at you...
you make a powerful use with the collage tools... it's a stunning (as well as shivering) travel to trace your footpints there... the intense expression of the subtexts and the understatements... the way we discover one piece of information after the other, till we get the point... I believe it's a gold mine for this time for you, and you prove wonderful talent for this visual language!... I'm very happy for you, Hanan, for trying and for finding it
... I had to add something, regarding this one in particular, but it valid also to your other works that I saw - this work has some "clinic" scent or aroma or feelin... it reminds me some medical books, maybe because of the combination of illustrations and words... sense of prescription, combined with post mortem report... did I went too far?
don't worry, i like to go far, and let other go too.
yes it has, i guess. don't forget my long medical formation. 8 years of med studies, and, i'm afraid to say this here but i had a real fascination for the forsenic course (medecine légale, we called that) to a point i considered taking it as a specialization at some point ( my teacher was so glad of me, i was the only one in class passionate about it )
i hope people don't consider me creepy after reading this.
i also love to read fiction books related to this (mysteries and thrillers)
i'd call that a fascination with the morbid. but i don't see it as a pathology , i guess it is here to counter balance my "little miss perfect" side
more personal answer: yes it is clinical, it has to do with death and pain, and i'm trying to fight them. or accept them.
