Artist Description

Artist Notes:
My artwork explores the idea of climate change in relation to water scarcity in our communities which leads to the suffering of birds and animals. Due to the increase of temperature day to day, birds are forced to enter human habitation in search of water. with drying up of water in rivers, dams and streams birds and animals are desperately forced to enter human habitant to quench their thirst. Even people in villages are seen travelling long distances in search of water.

In this artwork titled "partial liberty" this work speaks about the authorities who also contribute by denying access for humans to access water and by not distributing water to reach out to people in communities when water is available in reservoirs. Birds are juxtaposed to stimulate the viewer's emotional response. a tap is locked with a padlock to suggest power of the authorities who deny access of water to people
