Oil on canvas

Shashikala Tiwari’s mystical composition takes us to the spiritual world. The representation of Lord Ganesh is magical and strange due to the free association of figures along with displacement and condensation of images. Unusually big belly with elephant head is contrary combination with paradox for the general viewers but it brings the multitudes of myths to the informed audience about the evolution of the divinity who is supposed to remove obstacle from our way toward success. The harmonious colors and melting shapes smoothly take us to the imagined world of the canvas with aesthetic pleasure.
