Within
 

Within is and exploration of how color, shape, and space are combined to symbolize the strength of women in addition to a sense of sisterhood, integration, community, and a sense of transcendence. It was inspired by the colors of the Sudanese independence flag and portrays Sudanese women wearing the traditional garment “Toub”.

 

The color green represents prosperity and fruitfulness, the yellow and ochre represent light and the land, and the variations of blue represent the water of the Nile, which also represents depth, flow, and continuity.
