The Egyptian portrays women’s restraint, strength, courage and resilience at facing and finding her bearings and space in society.
The background was pink at first, with golden spots, and when the painting was fresh, I scratched it with a fork, expressing rebellion. The sun is there, showing her inner force, always present.
Pink turned red, less innocent, now bound and determined. Her head scarf, open as her own choice, is almost abstract, stained with golden pigment and red, like fiery life sparkles.
