"Dua"
2D Final project
Acrylic on wooden panel.
So this was my first time painting a girl with a hijab and showing it to a group of people. I had always been scared before that it would be seen negatively and avoided it through out my time in art school. But I gathered the courage to do it finally. The thing is if you paint people of color or of different religious background people will always see the painting about that, so i knew people would see this about muslim girls and only for that, so I used that to my advantage. Proposing the idea that i wear it for my faith and what I believe in. Let me tell you how uncomfortable it was because people felt uncomfortable critiquing on it because they didn’t want to seem “ignorant or against my religion” and i said no, say what you think. So we got into the politics of the hijab and Muslim girls in America and it was such a good ways to discuss these issue. The teacher got a bit flustered but I stood my ground and said these issues are such as important as discussing Psychoanalysis and other theories or issues. So Alhamdulillah this painting made me stronger and I feel like I wanna pursue paintings like these in the future Inshallah.
