Oil on canvas
122 x 183 cm
Santhosh has switched positive for negative colours in this work. An aged man appears to be operating a sewing machine in a confined space. The artist riddles the surface with wisps of illuminated light that fall over the image like uncontrollable energy or an explosive force. Santhosh often borrows from news images in his works but in representing them through negative colours, suggests otherwise hidden implications to be surmised.
