GRAHAM DAY: ZOOMORFIC CALLIGRAPHY

SOAS, LONDON
6 March–30 April 1990

British artist Graham Day responds to an ancient Islamic artistic tradition.

"The Islamic reverence for the written word has imbued the letter shapes with a magical quality that shines forth making itself felt even if the words are unintelligible. Rich marks indeed that not only please by their formal arrangement but are also doors into other words, a link with other souls, the chance to discover something new or old."

Graham Day, London 1988
