Delusion (2011)          
Ink and Acrylic on paper

Artist Statement
This work speaks to the migrant’s need to constantly re-orient ourselves in a new country. The crumpled heap of figures at the base represent past upheavals and the chaos and disorder of leaving home. While Fiji herself is in a state of chaos, our umbilical cord still binds us to her and holds us together.

Sangeeta Singh is a Fiji-born artist.  She uses her art to express social constructs regarding race, gender and sexuality. Women, family, history, love, dilemma and chaos inspire her work.  Frida Kahlo sums up how she feel as an ‘artist’ “I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.”
