Right Place Right Time is an retrospection of the artist's real first-hand experiences and her personalization of the wholesale slaughter of civilians in Syria. It was only days after the police began shooting and bombing the crowds of civilians, when her and her family received an opportunity to flee. And within days of leaving she received news that her own home had been targeted by an air strike, and her neighborhood had been leveled.

The drawing uses chalk to create an eerie and unsettling feeling where time is split between two possibilities, like a forked road. One possibility depicts survival where the other depicts loss. The juxtaposition of both is an important representation, not just that both directions can exist as a sole outcome, but more that both outcomes coexist within a survivor. In this artwork the surviving girl has a jasmine in her hair, a symbol of Syria, an important but subtle inclusion. Despite her being able to leave, she will never be able to leave her past behind, nor can she forget the possibility of what might have been.

Ayla Fowles

Background

Born in Syria shortly before the civil war, Ayla experienced first-hand the suffering and injustice caused by her government. Then living in Saudi, she lived under radical religious law. As a result she spent her teenage years locked in her room as she desperately sought any freedom she could find, which she found that through art. Art was her form of expression and as the years went by, she practiced and practiced while she waited for an opportunity.

She now gets to tell the story of her youth with the hope that she can show you how good things can come from bad situations, and to bring awareness to things she finds dear to her (or things that she thinks are really cool).
