Artmarket was a juried art competition, organized by a gallery that used to be located at Downtown Crossing, Boston. They exhibited the top 50 art pieces submitted for consideration. I submitted a few pieces, and one was chosen: “Eman Carried to Heaven by Angels,” which is one of the paintings I created while in the Al Hol Refugee Camp. It tells the story of a real infant girl, Eman Haju, who was killed by an Israeli missile that crashed into the Jenin Refugee Camp in 2002. This painting is oil on velvet. I used velvet because there was no canvas available in the Al Hol Refugee Camp, but I could buy black velvet and oil paints in the nearby village.
