A recurrent theme with the paintings of Ismael Fattah was his fascination with the human faces. Often his faces are shown lacking certain features, without a mouth, or without the eyes, but always portrayed with a certain strength. Sometimes these faces are watching or saying something, but usually his faces have lost at least one of their senses.
The placement of each face is emphasized within a square space to which it is allotted. Each one is in its place and often unable to see or speak.
