“This Moroccan artist works in a traditional painting method using pure vegetable pigments and sunlight to create his images. His studio is in a ksar , a group of earthen buildings forming a pre-Saharan fortified village in southern Morocco. We wanted to emphasize the ephemeral quality of these images by floating them in a frame which respected and referenced the tactile and tonal qualities of the original landscape, as well as the process by which they were created.” – Frances Waddock, Armand Lee customer
