Khaled Hourani, Madness (2022)

Endless barriers are being leapt over; barriers between what is normal life and what isn’t; barriers between homes, between a farmer and his fields, between a believer and his worship house, and between the scenery and the painter. Barriers continue throughout the country at its length and breadth, between the village and the city, within the country and abroad, on the borders between the north and the south, between one continent and another, and between the place and its details.

A prolonged interlude but we shall return.. we shall return home to paint life with all its glory and will leap over it as should be.
