Acrylic on canvas
This work is from the "Immigrants" series. Here I painted a portrait of a girl, a refugee from Africa. Her headdress and the girl herself are turning into a tree, the branches are her thoughts. Every branch - every thought - ends with a little face, showing a person remaining in her homeland she keeps thinking of, with whom she has a strong spiritual connection. This painting is an allegory of the strength of the clan. Even far, far away, all her relatives are with her. She has them in her soul, in her thoughts, her heart.
