A word used to express neighbourliness. Whilst translations usually render this words into English as ‘darling’ it shares more similarities with informal British terms of endearment such as ‘mate’ or ‘love’. Dutch
Language of the Land is a collection of paintings inspired by the United Arab Emirates, a place many call home. A place where a variety of peoples, cultures, and stories assimilate into a cohesive whole, all contributing to its
beauty and diversity. I named each painting after a word in the tongue of one of these peoples. In reading and understanding the words, the intention is to draw the viewer into the different cultures we live side by side with.
The colours used in the collection are inspired by the nature and the heritage of the UAE. Wherever your journey started, I invite you to retrace the path of the nomads and fishermen that gave colour to the desert lands and the seas like specks on a great canvas.
