An old artwork

The woman’s liberty

The lady before a goblet  Acrylic on canvas  30" x 24" (app.)  1991

The woman before a goblet     Acrylic on canvas     30″ x 24″ (app.)     1991

I painted this canvas in 1991 that took part in one of my solo show in the same year. This painted “to create a vortex of images that settle down upon close scrutiny into recognizable shapes..”, (art review in “The Statesman”) focussed a crude reality of the society’s intention to suppress the woman’s liberty where I saw few women who drastically discard the negative attitude and backwardness of the society that guided by the concept of male domination. Not that they were not aware to take drinks unhealthy but aggressively they wanted to take it as a protest symbol to protect the women’s privacy and highlight the power of women’s liberty. That was true because no adult female customer could enter into the bar alone without her male friend.

This is a peculiar incidence that this control is a typical mediocre social custom that anybody knows and this social custom does not exist nearly in other classes if they are economically backward, marginal or higher than the middle class. This is a standard motivation against the women’s freedom, their choices, their enjoyments, their thoughts, their feelings etc. and a part of pseudo progressive cultural phenomenon which had been grown up and mixed up with two aspects that one came with the values from other migrated cultures where another aspect that had generated from its own soil of the society’s feudal structure. This is also more interesting that the enlightenment could not change the motivation of the people although they are properly educated by the modern education system through out the country.
