My father: Good morning

Me: Good morning... It is still night father..

My father: No, Magd... The Dawn prayer has started half an hour ago...

Me:But it is still dark...

My father:No... the light is coming...the sun rose up...and we do too..

Me: Well...can I sleep for a while longer...

My father: Sleep later... we have a copper to fix..and then you sleep.

He used to accompany me to the copper makers to buy the yellow copper...he used to choose the copper sheets with a jeweler eye ... by the lover's eagerness .. checking its surface .. by a touch.. placing his cheek closer to it .. loving it ... reading it... as if there is a spirit inside it .. no one sees it but him ...yes only him... and the days have proven the truth of all this.

My father Gamal El- Sagini... my friend... my professor and my beloved...

He was able to convert this smooth surface into beauty, dynamic and a flame of art ..

The birth of the idea of the artistic work and putting its lines using the pencil on the surface required this tremendous ability and skill of drawing and analyzing the line and briefing it ... this was one of the talents of this leading professor... lines using the pencil...fine drawing... and then redoing the drawing using a steel pen... etching lines on the copper so that it does not get erased... Wake up Magd... we have work to do...

I woke up ... the white marble is clean... the bitumen is in the pot and on the fire the wooden frame to surround the copper and the bitumen under it is ready... it is the starting moment, but it is fearful... always, totally innovative and new... something full of love.

The bitumen melted... the copper sheet is ready to be glued on the bitumen... we pour the melted bitumen inside the wooden frame on the marble... we hold the copper with our fingertips... monitoring the progress - my father's eyes looking into my eyes...we carefully insert the copper sheet ... the drawing upside... with absolute kindness and love... it arrived... it rested... he looks at me... asks...did your hand touch the bitumen?

If it did! Quickly put your hand in water to avoid getting burned.... extreme human .. extreme loving.

Now it is the beginning of his personal artist trip by efficiently dealing with this surface from all sides of a sculptor, masterly dealing with his tools and controlling the alphabet of the material...

This exhibition that includes my father's "Gamal El-Sagini" works of hammered copper and medals and commemorative coins, where he skillfully dealing with the surfaces of different materials using his large ability of drawing and acting genius in employing talents of anthropomorphism and installation accompanied by his own understanding of the concept of symbolic to express humanitarian issues of homeland and society so that we enjoy reading these instrumentals

Let's behold the amount of love, talent, and fidelity to life... to homeland ... and to the people

Let's remember and pray for this great artist who enriched the artistic life in Egypt and he is still enriching it...

My Great Father...

Gamal El-Sagini my beloved, friend and professor.

Magd Gamal El-Sagini
