She is now a middle-aged woman, and in this book, she has drawn the story of her incredible journey from endemic poverty into the rich inner world of art.

Description

JOURNEYS

The idea and experience of travel can mean many things: it involves movement of some kind, sometimes through unknown places, at other times just between home and the world. Journeys can also be inward, marking rites of passage or a growth into a new dimension. We travel in seach of profit, pleasure or curiosity, to labour and survive, to flee from tyranny or sorrow, and into real and imagined utopias.
