‘Such searching has its own fascination. One ‘enjoys’ it even when tired, depressed, annoyed. But that is the nature of the creative process, perhaps even of life itself. Thus far have I come. It is for others to look for themselves in what I have done. Either way, we have all only just begun.’

– Anwar Jalal Shemza, quoted in: Calligraphic Abstraction by Iftikhar Dadi
