Defiant Trees

2023

This collection is a tribute to a community in turmoil, inspired by the ongoing uprising in Iran and the brave women leading the charge for freedom and equality. These trees are a poignant symbol of the struggles and sacrifices of these women, each one representing a story of sorrow and resilience, of keeping the lights on in the darkest of times and holding onto hope for a better future.

 

As we look at these paintings, we see the roots that run deep into the earth. And just as these roots hold firm in the face of adversity, so too do the women of Iran, standing strong and resolute in the fight for their rights and the rights of future generations.

 

This collection is a call to action, a reminder that we must stand with those who are fighting for their freedom and their right to be seen as equals in society. It is a celebration of the resilience and courage of these women, and a tribute to their unwavering commitment to a better future for themselves and their community.
