The aspiration for liberation, dignity and peace on one’s land are the dynamic forces that motivate the Palestinian Fellaha, or village woman, who ponders about her destiny under the olive tree, as the dove gently rests on the olive branch. ~ Catharsis ~ Catharsis is every artist’s seeking throughout the creative process. It is an internal journey through time that paves a path towards purification and liberation from suppression, nestled deep within them. Through wrath and resentment to dispossession and desperation, a sense of freedom is achieved when the artist executes the final brush stroke.
