Under the title of "Women's image and imagery" the painter Sumera Jawad has undergone the pain of discovering bitter realities buried since long ago. She has excavated with her brush, the buried history by unveiling the "image" of women through her imagery, that is why the myth, legends and literary characters of influential women are seen creeping through the scraped and scratched lines out of thick and thin layers of paint and printing ink.
Woman has been there, breathing in Vedas, Puranas, Upanishads and Gospels, carved in and out of the solid rocks. The lusty hands of the craftsmen for all time, slipped over the curves and contours of female body whenever she was encaged in the schist, sandstone or marble or her passionate looks enriched the colours to be dragged upon a surface in search of eternity. She has been under gaze since ages which has stretched her image on psychological, as well as concrete canvass to entitle the artist's imagery.
Man's life has never been complete without woman's image but in the way, he had wanted her to be, with some exceptions of a few sacred relationships and social bounds. Women's image developed mainly through man's imagery so, not to the surprise, sometime she was sited as a sacred and divine goddess or demigod under the ultimate intimacy, while sometime, contrary to that, she worn the title of witch, prostitute and the perpetual sinner.
Woman's image is as old as her association with Eve, she was first being dreamt by Adam as his counterpart; a well accepted religious doctrine. In a social context her image has always been there among all the civilizations and societies right from the Paleolithic Age, with the passage of time, which was excavated to the modern lifestyle of cyber life.
