Shell Shocked
Oil, Found object frame

1994

 

This picture is based on a photograph of a Palestinian woman who was located in a war zone in the early 1990s.  Her reaction to her war-torn world caught my eye.  She is an abuse victim.  

Abuse is abuse.  Her war-torn world was caused by nations fighting, but the private war-torn world that hides inside families brings the same look to the face.  War is war no matter what we call it or what its size or where it is located.  This is the cost of "civilization."
