Eman paints with shades that aren’t visible to the usual artist. Those of rebuilding a life uprooted by civil war. Moving to India for an education from war-torn Yemen, Eman sought solace in her brushwork when the lockdown began in 2020. Her enlivening brushstrokes speak of her longing for her family, especially her mother, and of the disproportionate toll military conflicts exact on women.
