Artist Sujata Tibrewala’s new exhibit at her Milipitas studio mourns the fact that the month of love is marred with news about unnecessary hatred and violence

Ideas of supremacy should be alien to human existence, when we are all alike

The exhibit gives the message that it is impossible to succeed without honoring the contributions of others

For artist Sujata Tibrewala, the month of February always signals a special time of the year. Not only is this the month of cupid, it is also the month when emotions such as love and compassion for all whom we care, are in the air. The month of February is also a reminder that spring may not be too far and hence is a time for new, sunny beginnings. However, the artist who looks ahead to creatively come up with works signifying happiness, love and joy during this time of the year was greatly distressed with shocking news about the senseless killing of an Indian tech guy at a bar in Kansas. She laments that during the time when the world should have been thinking more compassionately, one gets to hear of violence and hatred. For an artist, the best expression of their state of mind and of the happenings around them comes through the medium of their works. So, Ms Tibrewala is out with her new exhibit that for her signifies as a very honest attempt at trying to bring back humanity and compassion in this world. The artist through a series of paintings displayed at the exhibition talks about the fact that America is a melting pot of all cultures and traditions. She expresses her shock that emotions of supremacy amongst fellow human beings or making others feel as outsiders have crept in the society.

One of her displayed paintings titled ‘Oppression,’ is an acrylic on canvas work and through powerful symbolism it signifies that no human is superior to another. All of the mankind is as dependent on each other as they are on other life forms on earth. The artist believes that it is impossible to succeed without honoring the contributions that every person makes on this earth. Another work titled 'The Conformance Mold,' questions if it is the atoms that make up humans o humans make up atoms. If all of us are alike in constitution then how do the differences arise?

Through her exhibit she mourns the irreparable loss and hopes that one is able to rise above ideas such as territory and ownership because after all everyone is born on earth and has as much right to survive and excel as anybody else.
