Man Sitting on a Rock

Ismail’s sculptural characters are neutral, static, and observing, as if they were a witness in a court of history telling their testimony without any emotion, sitting on an elevated rock higher than the flat ground, on which take place the massive events of his land. Ismail’s sculptural style is free and expresses his divorced personality and absurdity to some extent. He gathers his works from pieces of clay and pastes them, as he pleases, and then passes his enchanting fingertips over them, presses them here, and squeezes them there, and extends them here, and simplifies them there, with every pressure and squeeze, and in which he spreads his soul’s pulse, to meet it and reveal to it what is difficult to reveal and impossible to disclose. The touches, passes and fingerprints of Ismail were deeply engraved on his sculptural works, witnessing that he left us many of them that narrate and remind us of difficult times.
