This painting by Jharkhand-born painter C. R. Hembram, speaks a of a post-industrialist apocalyptic
fantasy world. It is made up of rough industrial figures and forms. The woman is conceived as a‘soldier’, who earthy yet macho with her gun and helmet accompanied by a cocky pet dog smoking a cigarette. The surface of the work is covered in painted rivets and stiches to add to the rugged look of the painting.
Under this veneer of ruggedness, the woman is a vulnerable character surrounded by the bestial forces of society.
Medium: Acrylic on canvas.
