Srotoswini, a fourth year bachelor of fine arts student at Kala Bhavana, Santiniketan, discovered the Turn It Around Cards initiative on social media. His Nature vs Man series includes 10 works created in 2020. It is based on the misuse of nature’s gifts and their consequences. The third piece of art in the series has been selected for the deck.
The 21-year-old girl from Kestopur works with ink, charcoal, acrylic and digital prints, and is interested in photography and photographic manipulations.
“My works are based on real life incidents, memories and situations that are simply reshaped or rearranged and rearranged parts of the real world slightly distorted. Working with monochrome tones is as fascinating as it is with colors. Each tone has a different mood — the red in my work expresses the meaning of a dangerous scenario, while the black or something dark is death. The monochromatic tone of my map is the darkness to which the actions of humans are slowly leading us, and the red signifies the danger of its consequences. Being an artist selected and published at COP26 is an important step in my career. The idea of pairing works of art with a guest is unique and has given writers and artists equal exposure, ”said Srotoswini, who specializes in art history.
The entire Turn It Around card game is available online.
