An unmoving and focused settlement
Depicting the gothic placidity of lockdown during a Goan monsoon, each illustration centres a protagonist creature(s) that silently inhabits a home. Made as an attempt to understand isolation, loss and what it means to be ‘alive’, we begin to resemble our protagonists and their meditations.
