Desi Farmer. (SOLD)
Acrylic paint on canvas
Explosive colors, flavors and passion are some of the reasons India holds a deep place and my heart and identity.
Depicted here is a farmer, checking grain in his hand. The shed behind him holds stacks of wood. The tractor beside him carries goods and connects his business to the world. The lot behind him houses the family it's all about.
India reported 5,650 farmer suicides in 2014. This painting was created in memory of the families who have been impacted. Economic dependency created by the propagation of genetically modified seed was frequently cited as a cause.
