Folded hands depicts prayers for those who have lost their lives to this deadly virus and prayers for the safety of entire world. Folded hands also depicts a greeting gesture which is “Namaste” through which people can maintain social distancing and avoid physical contact while meeting and greeting. Its an effective measure to avoid transmission of virus / infection from one person to another.

Title- To Fix do not Mix

Material: cartridge paper, food colours, brush, paper tape.

About the art- We are still under lockdown,so minimalistic use of material. I used the reverse side of the earlier artwork for my Canvas and food colours which I am getting quite fond of actually. The dark colours symbolise the coronavirus.. you can see the central spirals very close there.. and only by distancing ourselves we can come into the light… That’s basically my theme.. the need for social distancing which seems to be the only measure that helps in this situation. Hence the title ~ To fix, don’t mix.  

About myself:

I think the McDonald’s ad is so relevant here as “I am loving it” .. ‘it’ being the creativity unleashed from my inner core.. I am Karen D’lima – in the field of education for over 24 years and recently have been studying to be an Arts-Based Therapy practitioner. Thank you for giving us this platform. It is so refreshing in the midst of all the turmoil and gloom around. It frees my spirit even if for a while. I am surprising my family and myself with my work actually. Stay safe. Stay distant. Stay strong in faith.
