Artist Statement

The most powerful and complex beings in the universe are women. Women may seem weak and powerless in the eyes of men, but do you know that inside they hide something that men overlook. That is the beauty of the mind, patience, strength, kindness. that is included in the identity of women. It is like a power that can create and change everything.

This painting, I got inspiration from My mother who may seem like an ordinary woman to others, but to me she is the most strong, patient, gentle and strong person. From this inspiration, I have conveyed this work to convey a gentle beauty but full of the power of ideas that men like us cannot deny.
