COURAGEOUS WOMEN SAVE THE WORLD, I AM ROSE, AND I WILL NOT DEPRIVE THE WORLD OF MY PERFUME

Samaa AL Ameer, 17, Iraq

n drawing this artwork, I was inspired by the awareness of my mother and my mother’s sisters who are working in the health sector and facing dangers at this time when the world is suffering from the Coronavirus. My mother abides by the precautionary procedures trying to protect me, because I’m a disabled girl and I have weak immunity, and my aunts are practicing their duties at health institutions. I imagine in this artwork that we will go away from the lockdown when we overcome the virus, because of awareness and conscious love. The girl who carries the umbrella is me, I am the disabled girl who looks like a rose, and I will not deprive the world of my perfume, I cannot walk, but I can fly with my imagination, dreams, and colors to the world, and my mother always supports all my steps and devotes her life to me and works hard to educate and train me, I have challenged my disability and achieved success and have a beautiful C.V, and the two girls are ballerinas who represent us, we are the girls who love joy and dance for life. This artwork is a digital collage of a group of my drawing and a number of photos, which are taken by me, of my mother and her sisters in her hospital clothes, and my photo, and I combined and worked on them digitally to form a digital painting.
