‘When I draw it means that something bothers me, but I don’t know what it is. So it is the treatment of anxiety’
My paintings revealed another layer of anxiety and conflict, which co-existed with the traumas of displacement. This is when I realised I was not voicing or acknowledging that I was haunted by the absence of my child. The consequence of this recognition took me beyond art, into a completely new realm - the role of questioning motherhood.
