About "The Despairing Slave"

This work is a figure from the composition "the Marriage Market" that illustrates a slave market in Cairo round about 1900. The target market was the sultans, who bought female slave for their harems to serve as concubines. I wanted to depict these women's hurt, shame and trauma - to be stolen from their loved ones and to live out their lives as slaves.

Tienie Pritchard: 1938-2021

The nude human form is the basis of my creative motivation. The human body is rich in associations and when it is turned into art, it can be expressive of a wide range of subjects. I strive to portray the evolution of the human mind by illustrating different cultures em mythologies and as well as historical figures re presenting different eras in history. The interconnectedness between man and animal is also a favourite theme, illustrating the spiritual kinship between man and animal.
