Walaa Fadul’s Light Upon Light (2022) seeks to convey the literal interpretation of Surah An-Nur, verse 35. Light is the primary element that shapes our environment and, therefore, our awareness. The artwork’s composition is influenced by the tradition of sacred geometry. Although Light Upon Light seems to be composed of seven colors, it is three layers of light created by three hues (red, green, and blue). The artwork questions how we perceive what we see, and the nature of reality itself.
