The assignment consisted of using colors and symbols to describe an important social current event. I chose to do my piece on law and women in the Middle East. The legal status of women in the modern Middle East has been in transition since the 20th century, so I decided to create a piece that describes this reformation. I created the stencils of the women, using the software Adobe Photoshop, and then painted the stencil onto the piece. The entire piece was done in gauche paints. Each color used has a different symbolic meaning, in the Middle East. Overall, I decided to combine the issue of women’s rights in the Middle East and the retro style of the 21st century.
