‘Stories in Circles’, Nariman Point
Sangeeta Waddhwani, a city-based journalist is set to embark on her new artistic journey. One of the highlights of the exhibition is a reflective artwork called ‘Eco Draupadi’. This piece portrays a stripped saree-clad figure, symbolizing the deteriorating state of nature. The artwork depicts the dire consequences of humanity's greed, represented by the forest fires engulfing her on both sides.
Another notable artwork, ‘Out of Africa’ sheds light on the exploitation of wildlife for consumer-driven fashion trends. ‘Stories in Circles’ comprises various circular and oval-shaped artworks, invoking the cosmic significance of the Bindu in Indian mythology. The collection includes thought-provoking pieces such as ‘Web of Life’, ‘Lotus Consciousness’, ‘The Wave’, ‘Cosmic Rose’, and ‘The Himalayas’, each offering its own narrative on sustainable lifestyles.
