In Abdul Jabbar Gul’s words:
Once, after visiting my studio someone asked: “What motivates you to work?”
I replied, most probably the urge for self expression; as a sensitive being I feel
and experience inner and outer world impressions that I share through my
But the more I try to explore the mysterious link of the corporeal world to the
ethereal world, the more my thoughts fly on delicate wings of imagination.
Searching for answers, I am confronted with ever deeper, unresolved questions.
Translated into the focus of my subject as three dimensional, winged forms, I endeavor to discipline my thoughts and create order by juxtaposing them with
the Thakhti, a symbol of awareness. Still my thoughts fly hither and thither,
leading me into unknown dimensions, ever teasing ever intriguing.
My work set out to explore numerous questions arising from the changing
circumstances of my life. I have no conclusions, so my work speaks of the
mysteries and ambiguities faced in this process.
