My inspiration with the composition of Frida Kahlo’s work, ‘the two Fridas’ where I felt my childhood memories and the present moment. I showed two different moods of mine. One is me in my mother’s saree which she wears with a wound in my hand which symbolizes my mother’s wound in her hand before her life ended. And sitting next to me as well in modern dress and I hold my mother’s hand with the wound in my hand which was due to a recent accident when a glass piece fell on my hand.
A few years ago, my mother and I were sitting in front of the mirror. We were talking in front of the mirror through lip reading. We touched each other’s throat and felt a vibration touched my hand, making me talk more and more. But now, I get the same feeling when I look in the mirror. I express my desperation and loneliness with the separation from my mother.
The moon in the sky on that ultimate day of my mother was a full moon night (Purnima).
