Oil on canvas; 24X36”
I️ finished this painting in 2018.
This painting is my signature style done in an unconventional color palette. I️ wanted to depict various facets of Indian women – this being one of them. These three are dressed up in traditional attire but could have been ultra-modern in what they do for a living, how they are raising their kids, how they chose their partners etc. Indian women have so many layers of culture, heritage, and their own choices built into their personalities. This picture is almost calling out to the onlookers and saying ‘keep trying to figure us out’.
I️ like to repent Indian women in their various glorious forms cherishing their relationships or having a moment of solitude without any qualms.
