Siddiqa Juma

My work has always focused and sought to inspire and evoke a spiritual response in the viewer. Both consciously and subconsciously.The Sufi dervishes have long been known for their unique method of prayer and remembrance, as well as their abandon of the material and ascetic lifestyles. I am particularly drawn to their complete submission and immersion into the realms of deeper spirituality and their connection with the One God. To see a dervish in motion, one cannot help but be simply moved and fixated by their goal to reach spiritual and religious ecstasy. My sincere hope is to have created a series of work that truly captures the essence of what makes that special bond between the dervish and the Maker so unique.
