Faiza paints in Pakistan

Through Flickr I have gotten to know the work
and the strength of Faiza Khan. From the
beginning I noticed the powerful presence
of her work and the skill in her techniques.
That she is painting nudes and women's
emotions in Islamabad was astounding to me
and now she writes of her worry of the Taliban
raids in the countryside just outside her city and
she worries about her 2 daughters "Will they be
able to have even a basic education?" And
of art, she queries, "Will art survive?" I fear for
her and these other women expressing themselves
through painting in a country filled with fear,
an "imprisoned society". To read more I am hoping
my linking will come through.
