Feeding Mother

Feeding mother was created for the exhibition titled ‘Mother and Child’, way back in 2002. I had chosen to depict ordinary activities that bring out the tenderness and caring of the mother for this theme. A mother feeding her baby is a natural and intimate act that shows the mother and child in great harmony. I find the tribal outfits extremely fascinating given the intricacy and beauty of the clothes and jewelry. Hence, I have depicted a tribal woman in this composition. A photograph has been used as a reference for this work. Executed with Indian ink on textured paper using dry brush technique, this painting was one among those sold in this series.
