About "Slave girl"

My acrylic painting (after the sculpture of Tienie Pritchard) was done on canvas.
The sculpture depicts a slave market somewhere in the Orient round about 1800, where an Arab slave trader puts his ware up for sale. His target market is the Sultans, who bought female slaves for their harems, to serve as concubines or who might be lucky enough to become one of his wives. The women are from different nations and races – Muslim society was not race or colour conscious. The women differ further in age and physique. They are real people from different walks of life, captured and carried away from their homes and loved ones. They are all resigned to their fate, inwardly battling the humiliation, hurt and shame. Although they are sharing the same predicament, everyone’s attention is turned inwardly, each one solitary in the contemplation of her own sorrow. The standing girl is the youngest and the prime exhibit of the day. She is from Abyssinian origin, a firm favourite under slave traders because of their women’s reputed beauty. Abyssinian slaves were much sought after and fetched high prices

About Elizabeth

Elizabeth Kendall

Since my childhood I have lived for moments when I could paint and draw. Pencils, crayons and bright coloured paint held so much promise. A few years ago I decided to improve myself and underwent formal art training. The lessons served as further inspiration and combined with my own experience, what you see here today are results of my progression.

During my years of teaching, art was one of the subjects I offered to my eager students, and thus I could live my passion through everyday work. The love was always there, in whichever form I would use it.

After a lifetime of teaching it is a wonderful privilege to spend every waking hour of my day (if I so choose) with my paintbrush. To experiment with different media, to inhale the heavy scent of the paint, to feel the colours brush my soul. What awe inspiring, God given talent this is to me!

I derive my inspiration from nature, I love gardening and photography.These are the things close to my heart. To capture images of landscapes, flowers, buildings and great masses of water lies close to my heart.

The time is now that I must share my work and passion with everyone out there!

I am so excited about what the future will hold. Laughter, joy, good health and all the other blessings on my road... It is truly a great privilege to be part of S.A. Atrists.com. May you find my joy filled message in my art and make it your own.
