    Ali Rassam

    “In storytelling, movement and travel from point to point are desirable to me, but in painting I like stillness. Movement creates story, and I am disinterested in narrator and storyteller painting. I am fascinated by my image because it does not move, does not do anything, and sitting or standing, does not move from its place forever. I love paintings that have nothing to say.
    However, there is also a secret movement in the image. Perhaps I want to draw this continuous and invisible movement like a recording device by repeating over and over again. I often do not succeed, but it is extremely sweet to me. “Like a seismic device, a fault that is unable to record earthquakes, but the earthquake shakes it anyway.”
