I am very pleased to share some good news about my refugee series of paintings. “Alone” and another piece showing refugee children were selected for the current (Spring 2017) issue of Rejoinder, an online journal published by the Institute for Research for Women at Rutgers in partnership with the Feminist Art Project. The issue explores how borders and bodies shape our understandings of selfhood, exile and home. The issue is available at http://irw.rutgers.edu/rejoinder.
I am pleased that my painting, “Alone”, has been selected for this exhibit.
“One of the basic needs, with food and love, SHELTER is a major concern for all living beings, especially when it comes to refugees, immigrants, those struggling to pay the rent, and victims of domestic violence. Artwork centered on SHELTER, open to the artists’ interpretation, aims to bring light to the struggles in the search for this essential ingredient for happiness and security.” (Harlem School of the Arts, the Herb Alpert Center)
