Art by Bhanusmita Hazarika, Guwahati, Assam
Title of the artwork:-The Healing Nature, Medium: Fabric stick in a cardboard, Size: 29*26cm
Brief: My art titled The Healing Nature, is an attempt to capture in fabric(only thing available in my house bcoz of lockdown),an aspect of our mother nature. Nature at times can be both destructive as well as constructive. It never forgets its responsibilities, though at times teaches humans lessons of life.
Amidst the grim situation of deadly coronavirus outbreak, nature has not stopped its other duties. It has continued to bloom, to shine, to give hope, to give strength, to soothe and calm…. We, as human beings, should understand from nature that, we should not give up at tough times and continue to perform our duties and responsibilities… The hard times will pass by itself
I am a teacher by profession.. During this hard time of virus outbreak-lockdown, I am left with not enough materials, but lucky to have some acrylic colours, some months ago.. I didn’t have a canvas, so I made it with fabric pasted on cardboard.. I am not an artist, it is only my passion…
