Pramila Shakya Bajracharya. Nepal. WOMAN WITH ELEPHANT. 2009. Acrylic on wood packing crate. Size: H20xW20XD2 inches.
Pramila’s story. I was captivated by a trip to Sri Lanka and wished to narrate my experiences and senses in my art. I had a solo show in 2008 - `Passing Through…’ and this piece was in the collection. This woman, like my Nepali rural women is going about her seemingly everyday activities and chores. But there is a restlessness in her. That’s what I seek to capture – what goes on below the surface.
