Art Description

Collage: Wax, Resin, Found Objects, Digital and Paint on Paper and Other.

This is an encaustic mixed media piece. It's 12" x 36" x 2". It depicts the lavish adornment of flowers typical of a Hindu wedding ceremony. The tuberose is a flower used here and known as the forbidden or dangerous pleasure, as it is considered an aphrodisiac and a dangerous flower for young women to be seduced with. Dowry killings are a dangerous fate for some women in India, making the pleasure of marriage a potentially dangerous ceremony.

This piece was created to make a statement, "The time has come to abolish dowry killings, enforce a positive step in the right direction and begin a new tradition of honoring women as givers of life"
