Saurganga Dharshandhari.  Nepal. DELIGHT. 2015.  Etching aquatint on paper - artist proof.  L21 X W17 (framed).

 

Saurganga’s story.  “My art is my diary – my record and platform to promote political and social change especially as it relates to the role of women and men in society.  My father inspired me. He was a dancer and he used to take me to performances. He would see the dance and the steps and all I would see were colors and movements.  In DELIGHT, she is like a goddess for her power, flowers – her honesty, purple - her hue and fragrance, erotic figures in her hair - her sensuality, the crow - her awareness.”
