Acrylic on Plywood

Inspired by two of Guru Nanak’s Shabads, “Jin ke chole rattre piaare, kant tina kai paas” in Raag Tilang, on Ang 721, and “Baras ghanaa meraa man bheenaa” in Raag Malaar on Ang 1254. This piece depicts a set of individuals in a rainstorm and aims to portray their reactions to the rainwater. Most people reject the rain, seek cover, and are wanting. However, there are those few, who accept the rainwater and rejoice in its ability to drench the lover with love. The colours are purposefully minimal in this piece to show how seemingly ordinary things can, in fact, be extraordinary. Also, the faces remain anonymous to prevent judgment on the perspectives presented.
