GOD IS GREAT 1

Are you uncomfortable?

Two lean nude female torsos in black and white are posed side by side. Their erotically charged postures are separated by a gray bar. Arabic characters composed of pink and blue stripes float across the canvas, their forms are outlined in yellow, looking like urban graffiti across images of sculpted female bodies. What do these characters mean? Allah Uh Akbar (God is great) is in the center, then come Love, Wisdom, Life, and Peace. All are words with positive connotations, but the juxtaposition of female nudes with the Arabic characters makes us uncomfortable. Why?…
