Do you know you are not alone when you are fighting for what you believe in? Your family is also fighting alongside you, persistently.
When I came to a realisation, while I was fighting through paintings to bring the critical question on treating women’s clothes as unblissful dirt, my parents received bad judgments consistently from society.
Mixture of seeing your loved ones under mental pains and confusions between the new concept of a better enhanced society and the essence of my family being looked at through the critical eye is the main impression from this mixed-media painting. Furthermore, I am puzzled and in a dilemma as to whether to continue with these sorts of artworks with a deeper cause or halt my proceedings to decrease the harmful attention my family is receiving.
And since my family has been extremely understanding of my artworks, even when living in a conservative culture and traditionalist society, I will break through my dilemmas and continue with artworks like ‘ Breaking Self’ , which falls under the belt of activism art.
