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. Pink turned red, less innocent, now bound and determined as the sun is, showing her inner force, always present.
Her head scarf, open as her own choice, is almost abstract, stained with golden pigment and red, like fiery life sparkles.
