Description:
The project I propose here will look at the trauma of abuse in a way that it moves people enough to care. Black ballpen on paper -- my medium -- to me is the perfect vehicle for what I wish to depict. Stark, dark and clear. I have always wanted to create art that shows to the world -- in particular, our world here in Pakistan -- the way the abused see their surroundings; it’s about them looking in -- or looking out at times -- at the world. In doing so, I hope to create in people a vision that looks at abuse not just as something to be pitied in passing but as something that needs to be taken head-on. The question that comes up in any debate around rape or abuse is: how do we get the various levels of our society to talk more openly about this? To me, art connects everyone -- no matter where they come from. And if the trauma suffered by a mind or a body or a soul can find expression anywhere, it is by art -- spoken, written or drawn.
