Sama of letters is calligraphy-painting by Masoud Safar, with dimensions of 175 x 135 cm, and is created with gold sheet.
This calligraphy-painting is an endless collection of letters revolving around a center. The letters are responsible for creating words and conveying meanings, but now they abandon their mission and are dancing Sama (a Sufi dance); Drowning in an invisible attraction that creates a state of dance. The dancing letters form a radiant sun that overcomes the darkness of other letters. The letters are so drowned in this mystical dance that their dots have fallen apart.
Calligraphy-painting is a contemporary field of art; Encountering alphabets as a purely visual element; the shapes formed by combination of letters and words; A collection of forms that is a new representation of traditional script (Kufic).
