The Vanished Birds, 2021

Manisha Tripathy

Mixed media on canvas

As Mother Teresa pointed out in her speech for Nobel Prize 1979 - “Abortion has become the greatest destroyer of peace, because it destroys two lives, the life of the child and the conscience of the mother.”

Through this thickly layered composition, the artist explores the overlapping multidimensional biological, sociological & psychological realms of life's Creator and Destroyer. The mixed media elements try to build an investigative narrative with metaphors used.
