Lot 178 - Claudia Dharmashi - Running for the Sake of It
Monoprint on Paper
A6 (10x15cm) original artwork
Signed on verso
My work is inspired by family photo albums from the early 1900s. I create collages, paintings, and prints in which I reimagine these images. I am particularly interested in the role of women in these albums and aspects of colonial life.

About the postcard artworks
This image expresses freedom and positivity to me, a moment shared with a friend. I wanted to capture the spontaneity and movement of the photograph, monotype seemed the perfect medium for this.
