Veil Of Silence: Silent Agony. Collins Osemeke Collins Osemeke
This mixed media watercolour painting, unveils the harsh reality of domestic violence, weaving a narrative of individuals who endure the devastating impact of abuse within their home environment.

At the center of this artwork, you see a female portrait with eyes that speak volumes of the pain and suffering she has experienced. The injury on the forehead are haunting, serving as a testament to the physical and emotional wounds inflicted by domestic abuse. The blood and scar depicted in the painting vividly capture the brutal severity and trauma that countless individuals face on daily basis.

The figure is adorned with a symbolic scarf, representing the shroud of silence that often veils this pervasive issue that’s being on the rise globally. This veil is a powerful symbol of how victims are often silenced, their suffering hidden from view, and their voices unheard.

This piece is not just about illustrating the pain; it’s a poignant reminder that domestic violence goes beyond mere statistics. It serves as a vivid portrayal of the profound suffering that many individuals face, irrespective of gender. This painting is a call to collective action, urging heightened awareness and solidarity with survivors of these traumatic experiences.

“Veil Of Silence: Silent Agony» comes from the stories of resilience and strength shown by survivors of domestic violence. Through this piece, I aim to shed light on their struggles and encourage a deeper understanding and empathy within our community, hoping it evoke and prompt deeper reflection, conversation, and ultimately, action towards creating awareness of this menace and bring about supporting survivors and proffer ways in combating domestic violence.
