This portrait is part of series that captures “Souad”,the artist’s subject of love, desire, and hope. One can only go beyond representation when gazing at this “portrait”, baffled and  asking  the Magritteian questions: is this Souad ? this is not Souad ? is this a portrait of Souad ?.

These questions are endless and there are no specific answers to them, especially because of the uncanny effect that the portrait creates, an effect that gives us the chills as if Souad has just sat down to be painted, she is lifeful yet not alive .
