Artist Comment: In Afghanistan is part of my “Issues of Our Time” series. It is a based on a photograph in an exhibit by Afghan women university students, 2005. The photo shows that Afghan women are not forced to wear the Burqa and can travel without a male family member, such as on this remote village road. But Taliban and religious terrorist rule has influenced women to cover their faces with a Chadar (scarf). Before, women would only cover their heads, not their faces.

I had permission to use the photo as a basis for my painting from the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC), which sponsored the exhibit.

This painting is 20 by 20 inches, gallery wrapped on heavy duty stretchers, with painted sides, so a frame is not necessary. The painting is signed and dated on the back. I send a letter of provenance which increases the value of the work. All my artwork is copyrighted by Eleanor Gilpatrick. Copyright is nontransferable through the purchase of artwork. Free shipping in the United States.
