Final Piece

I did this portrait to show the abuse I've gotten from men just like the other women in my family but despite all that we still remain strong. The bruises are a metaphor for the abuse and the man in the portrait being the abuser but although he's trying to still comfort me I'm not looking at him to show im seperate still. I wanted the guys face to be hidden so it doesnt take the focus away from the fact its a portrait about me.


  1. Farideh! You've been so courageous! :-)

  2. awww well im glad u like it ^_^ was scared it wouldnt make sense

  3. It makes great sense. Plus your brave to post half naked images of you on here to :). I like the idea of the face being turned away.
