Artist Statement

Abu Dhabi-based Naz Shahrokh’s latest work, “on the road (be fekret hastam)”, is a conversation with Jack Kerouac and his novel “On the Road”. The scroll like form represents Kerouac’s process of working on the scroll for his novel, while the work is also conversation with the energy of the Beat Generation and the philosophy inherent with that period of Zen Buddhism, the practice of consciously living in the now, while walking through the journey of life. This work is a narrative describing the theory in metaphysics of twin souls.
