FOR MY CHILDREN
No. of pieces: 1
Size framed: 85cm x 55cm
Medium: Oil on canvas
For My Children depicts a Zimbabwean woman posing for her photograph. She is dressed smartly, and sits formally, her position within the frame slightly awkward and constrained. The artist has deliberately chosen warm colours and soft fabrics to offset the tension in the composition. The woman’s strained pose contradicts her relaxed facial expression; she seems emotionally comfortable despite her physical unease. She has made sacrifices to create a life for her young family far from home. Outside of her homeland she feels alien and vulnerable, but as a mother she is stubborn in her optimism for the future. Her eyes tell us that she is hopeful. Hopeful for herself, and for her children.
