‘This presented series of paintings is one that came from intimate thoughts.
The figures on the canvases are the voices of my self-empowerment, guiding the navigation in finding my true self.
Like the cycle of seasons, women give renewed vitality to life and themselves – a union of gentleness and strength.’ (Afa Annfa)
