Women Facing War: The Hub Gallery Kuwait

The brief called for artworks that portrayed hope and womens’ strength of courage during war, not images of violence.

I chose to do a narrative about nurture, unity, liberation & peace in a comic book format.

The style is deliberately simplistic. The colours are bright and punchy; the images articulated in black line but with the added depth and transparency of watercolour rather than flat Gauche or Acrylic.

At first the message seems quite trite, using the hackneyed symbol of a white dove, but each image has undercurrents that roll on, raising questions and morphing into other interpretations.

Unfortunately, due to censorship, the first image was omitted from the exhibition and the other three were split up and hung in an uneven vertical manner.
