Sangeeta Singh

Title: Resilience
Year: 2009
Medium: Acrylic, marker pen on canvas

ARTIST STATEMENT

Inspired by a newly married/migrated Indian woman the artist saw standing at an Otahuhu balcony in full wedding dress, staring out into the distance. The artist evokes a sense of anticipation of better days to come. This reflects the artist’s feelings about the resilience of the people of Fiji during the current political crisis. She believes “we will find our own way” and should be “left alone to sort ourselves out”.

Sangi darling, i so love barbed-up woman: If there was a picture for the phrase stark naked: she is it! not just bringing the female into the political shait we’re immersed in right now but so about sexual minorities’ issues, well that’s how i see her anyway; i will just pretend she’s on her way to the wet southern downs after Fiji Times. Big wow darling and much congratulations. xx
