Art Description

Collage: Oil, Plaster, Paper mache, Wood and Textile on Soft (Yarn, Cotton, Fabric), Wood and Other.

A longing to be in the open, do some manual work and feel the freshness of the earth.

After being cooped up within four walls you long to hear the music of birds and feel the sun on your back. You relax as the cool morning breeze touches your face.

This painting is a collage made from many items.

I used Plaster of Paris, Cotton Wool, Hey and Paper Mash to create shapes, figures and textures, working with bare hands.

I even broke the palette, which I had used for my earlier painting, in the shape of a flower pot with flowers and stuck it on the windowsill. In fact, the name ‘Divine Palette’ came from that.

Bits of Mirror serve to decorate and add the Indian Folk look. Sticks and cloth are also used to add to the effect.

The house, pots, well, wheelbarrow, scarecrow are made of Plaster of Paris. Hey is on the roof. The relaxed man is made from Paper Mash and the entire artwork is created on Plywood and painted with Oil colours.

I wanted the painting to have a rustic look like tribal or folk art. When I finished it, I felt relaxed and rejuvenated and hope that the viewer feels the same.

Decorative wooden frame in Matt Black colour.

The Artwork is fragile and needs to be handled with care.
