Title: Swimming to the surface, moving towards light
Description: When they ask, what do you want to do, once you are set free, I say, I swim towards the light and away from the darkness.
The situation worldwide is taking a toll on all of us - Physically, mentally, financially and socially. And so, to keep a positive demeanor, people often ask each other, "what'll be the first thing you do, once this is over?" And people reply with everything they're dying to do right now.
For someone like me, who isn't dying to do anything but just be outside the walls of my house, this painting is my reply. I'm dying to walk into the light, I'm dying to swim to the end of this time.
The work is a part of challenge curated by @theworkofartstudio called #riyaz30dayartchallenge
I am as clueless as the voyagers are in the outer space. I am with the same hope too, of survival, of revival.
