Artist Statement

All the stories about the universe -
the stars, the void, other dimensions, other worlds,
black holes, galaxies - the distance of light

I have searched for some way that I might see it all. How, in this short life, can I travel throughout this huge and limitless universe?

I close my eyes.
I dive within. I realize that the inner space is deep and infinite. There, inside, I travel.

My artwork presents views I have captured in my travels through cities that I have built in the cavities of my brain. It is the dialogue between these two limitless universes, one within and one without. It is the dialogue between Matter and the Void.

- Khalil Allaik
