My piece for the upcoming Message in a Bottle exhibit at the Light Grey Art Lab, opening January 25th in Minneapolis!  Looks like it's going to be a killer show. I would talk about the piece some more, but the whole point of this show is SECRETS on top of SECRETS

The composition on this is so beautifully simple, I specially love the how the passage of time is given in the deterioration of the building's contours. Thank you for the eye candy.

Oh wow, that style is gorgeous. I love the colours you've used they work together so well. And the accents seem so well balanced. I must say I have a soft spot for stylised Egyptian pieces. I think that may be down to the movie 'The Mummy' which I loved. Awesome scene, wonderfully balanced.

this is simply marvellous; the juxtaposition is just lovely, as is the angular style, which is very fitting with the setting!

I am absolutely in love with the fact that the backgrounds of the two changes depending on the time frame as well.  With the left having the pillar shattered and the hole in the wall where you cana see the sky and the "BC" Egyptian's building is intact as it would have been at the time.

Amazing concept and so complete, yet so simple.  I just love finding works like this where, despite the simplicity, there is always something new that catches my eye every time I look at the image.

The only Arabic on the poster is what he's saying, "This is important"- everything else is various forms of Egyptian. :)

i reread it and now i understand
"hatha muhim" its only hard on my to understand which way to pronounce it with out those extra lines on top or below. Arabic vowels i believe. 
hatha - this
muhim - important
