Iron Mosque

Jocelyn Lewisham W08

My Mosque paintings represent Harmony. The story behind my Grand Mosque collection:

When we first moved to Dubai I had to learn to drive on the other side of the road amongst city chaos with my young daughter in the back seat. Every day I would take her to school on one of Dubai’s busiest roads. There was a Mosque, partially obscured by trees. The Mosque signified my exit. It would pop out at me from behind the trees. Every time I saw it I had such an overwhelming reaction of relief and appreciation for its beauty. So I wanted to paint that feeling showing the movement and energy of life all around and through it all you can always find something to focus on. Sometimes it is obvious, sometimes not. But it’s always there if you look. And so was born my Grand Mosque collection with the texture and its ability to change with the light, sometimes standing clear on the canvas and sometimes not.
