Years of Yes

Awanle Ayiboro Hawa Ali / Ghana

Acrylic and machine finished coated paper on canvas


About The Artwork

Capturing the expression of an innocent young woman frozen in time, a young woman who has had enough of society's inducements and unattainable expectations from her community, a woman desperately needing to share her feelings with the rest of the world - ‘Years of Yes’ focuses on the role of time in the lives of many young women. The subject’s closed book titled 'This Is Not A Love Story,' represents the dashed goals and aspirations of many in society forcing them to give up all hopes of school or jobs. Awanle, using herself as a muse, expresses the plight of many young women tired of battling for their rights in vain, and she hopes to inspire others not to give up.
