An Odyssey with chilies

Acrylic on canvas
61 x 92 cm

“Chilled Odyssey” is an artistic creation I’ve crafted in honour of the Silalekh, a historical artefact dating back 200-300 years. Through this piece, I aim to intertwine my emotions with the inscriptions, reflecting upon my personal connection with the past. While exploring the city, I stumbled upon a captivating scene infused with the colours and ambience of history. The historical Silalekh was being used for drying chillies. This encounter triggered a realization that numerous invaluable historical objects and landmarks are gradually fading away with time. My work endeavours to convey the concern of preserving the monumental fragments of our nation’s history
