Mahua Mazumdar
Sanctuary
2014
Oil on Canvas
24 x 30 inches
This piece is inspired by the very human urge to be held and sheltered. A hug, an embrace, makes us feel sheltered and secure even when in reality the surroundings are dark and dangerous. Through this piece I want the viewer, as an onlooker and non participant in the act of embrace, to perceive this very primitive form of human emotion.
