Event Description

Surviving All Odds is a solo show by Artist Shirley Mathew at MKF Museum of Art. 

About the show
A time to remember in the not very distant past, when humanity went through challenges and Nature took her own path from survival to reconstruction. One experienced angst and isolation while senses sharpened to hear birds twittering, trees swishing in the wind and observing that rains washed away the grime left behind by man-made intrusions in an urban scenario. Picasso once famously quoted, “ Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life...” a sentiment that leaves one to ponder over!

My constant has been a relentless attempt to continue the narrative of Nature’s course in the battle for survival with Mankind! Using visual symbolism in my works, I would like to create a bond with the viewer and to share my experience as a city dweller. There is an emotional resonance that is embedded in each creative expression on paper and canvas surfaces applied with mixed media.
