The future of any society depends on the women of the society. In many parts of Africa, women are primarily responsible for child-raring and homemaking. From the Western point of view, this might seem archaic, but in the African climate being in charge of raising African children and managing the African household gives African women the power to shape the continent’s future. In this painting, the subject wears bold, over sized, modern sunglasses and her mouth is slightly agape as if she has just seen something incredibly bright, yet awe-inspiring that is not visible to viewers. The collage images in her clothing show various beautiful and intriguing images of women from all over Africa. There are images depicting extreme joy and extreme despair. Together, these images aim to show the strength and resilience of the African woman and how because of them the future of the continent looks bright.
