Palestinian artist Abeer Jibril's daughter dances ballet while Abeer Jibril is painting at home, in Gaza city on October 16, 2021. Jebril’s dark-coloured paintings show ballerinas chained in barbed wire, dancing on rocks, or facing barricades to mirror what she calls the “ticking bomb” reality of women in Gaza. She hopes her portraits will bring attention to the social and political problems women face in Gaza, home to two million people and devastated by wars and economic restrictions.
