OH SHE FLOWS _ STILLS


NFT SERIES / AUG.2021 / HICETNUNC



Though I derive a lot of joy from drawing women, it is a difficult exercise. The inevitable instrospection is not always welcomed and almost always gruesome. To be at peace with one’s gender is a process, not a state. Every time I draw women, I am reminded of that. 
For this particular series, I represent women in family, in all their glory and complexities. I remember their deeds, what makes them tick (to my knowledge), and make somewhat informed guesses at their fears - the many known and unsaid things that hold them back. 
Each life has its share of heroism, an obscure heroism, born of abdication, of renunciation and acceptance under the merciless whip of fate.
- Mariama Ba
