Erina Tamrakar. Nepal. SHAKTI. 2014
Acrylic on canvas. L36XW26.5 inches.
Erina’s story. This is my favourite painting. I imagined women’s strength and collective bargaining when we come together. I used red to symbolize power, the tree as a symbol of life, and the third eye to signify women’s shakti or strength. It was selected for a curated show of women artists to honour International Women’s Day in Nepal, 2014.
