Artist's description:

This painting is a satire on sexism in the art world . In the real world,women are considered more suited to bearing children and posing as objects of art . Art critics ,and the galleries have refused to acknowledge the equality of the women artists . A clear proof is that only one out of the 100 lots sold at auction in 2015 was a woman .

This work technically is made to look like a slate board with chalk writing and drawing . It was only when I observed my daughter drawing fast and freely without any fear of being judged for the shapes and colours that I was reminded of my free beautiful compositions on blackboard back when I was a child myself . It was the most freest expression of the self and most creative with the simplest tools of chalk and slate . In here , I seek freedom of my own work for worthy causes inspired by my children . I have tried to capture the entrapment and the constant hurdles women face in a bid to make their own mark.
