Views of the installation version of "Return of A Native", Troy, New York, 1993.


"Hence, the complex drawings like "The Return of A Native", which he produced by utilising pencil, marker and liquid paper on board, in the early 90s is evidence to attaining a plateau where the artist was producing processual studies and story-board type inquiries towards the production of expansive performance type video art installations. Jamal had reached a level where he revels in surface defragmentation, transcends planar constraints and had become conversant now in reciting his visual interest beyond typical stylistic engagements. His markings became more discriminating and had to assume an ever probing role in his analysis of reaching truth and beauty."
