Din ne jab dhoop kou siyaahi mein badalte dekha is part of a suite of seventeen works called Naguftaha – e – Hawwa (The unspoken words of Hawwa) created by Arshi Irshad Ahmadzai (b.1988).
The Koh-e Asmaai (mountain of Goddess Asmai) in front of the artist’s apartment in Kabul served as the inspiration for this work. To illustrate the idea, the artist has used floral dye, ink, and fabric to paint geometric shapes. Addressing the simple form of the work, Ahmadzai states, “I was always drawn towards minimalism, so these empty spaces always existed in my subconscious. But you can say, it’s a conscious effort where I am trying to use this emptiness as another material or use them as a source for reduction.”
