I painted my kids black, 2018

By Meru

Acrylic, oil pastel on canvas

How to be a human, artist, and a woman at the same time?  The painting “You paint your children black” was born out of dilemma when artist was approached with a question for busying herself with art all the time. She was told that her children would simply starve because she paints all the time and is no good housewife material.
