INDIA SHINING 11 (GANDHI BUST WITH HEADPHONES)

ARTIST'S STATEMENT: Gandhi as a Metaphor
India is a euphoric mix of all kinds of forces. This churn creates the strangest of combinations. In my "India Shining" series, of which this edition is a part, I try to find humor in these, often incronguous, mixes. Mahatma Gandhi, who I deeply respect, becomes a metaphor for an India of austerity that is fast disappearing. In my work he keeps running into, and adopting, the ways of the new, materialistic India. I try to convey the notion that while many of the new-fangled ways may have been alien to the old India and sit a little awkwardly, that Gandhi's India is, nonetheless, open and receptive.
