Savant

August 22, 2018

Urvashi’s piece read to me like a children’s book. Except where there should have been fun and play there was war, injustice, and cruelty. I wanted to transform it into a visual that combined propaganda posters with children’s book illustrations. I felt the simple innocence of the characters in her work having to go through such evil had to be explored in a way which resonates their reality. What would happen if we placed a beloved cartoon character in the same situation? I want the viewer to feel the same confusion, heartbreak, and disgust.
