No Shadows


Acrylic on Canvas, 18 by 36 inches, Ready to Hang


Out of stock



Inspired by Stilt Fishermen of Srilanka, who sit on long stilts near the shore so no shadows fall on the water.

I wanted to see Fisherwoman who do this, as part of my usual gender twisting, but it is also a commentary on the social requirements of a woman to be unseen/no shadows/no scenes in the society. The stilts also show the great inconveniences women bear to remain unnoticed/no shadows.
Would love to hear what this painting means to you guys!

It’s been in mind for a long time to do this painting, so happy to have crossed it off my list. Technically I loved using a lot of palette knife and imprecise strokes after the completely balanced and careful brush strokes of my Bheeshma.
