Artist's Description

Oil and ballpoint pen on Canvas. 121 × 121cm. 2008

This is a portrait of a good friend Mulkie Suleyman, who is a Somali Muslim, living in Australia for the past 10 years. The place behind her is based on Mosques in Cairo, but is just representational of Islam really, not any place in particular.

I called it Pilgrimage because I wanted it to be about the journey we are all on to find our roots, be comfortable in our faith, and come to terms with our past.

Entered in 2008 Blake Prize for Spiritual & Religious Art. Entries close 27/6/08, and I hope I get in!!!
