This limited edition serigraph is part of a series titled ‘The Ahmedabad Serigraphs’ which consist of 33 serigraphs done by 33 different artists each serigraph is a window to the city, as seen from the eyes of the artist, each of who has presented a central idea of Ahmedabad as testimony of their feeling for the city.
Transition, is a use of humour and irony for the concrete jungle that Ahmedabad is becoming, and people flocking towards it and disregarding the demolition of the heritage that is happening in the process. In this work, the bird feeder or the ‘chabootra’, is shown in a wide spectrum of colours, a metaphor for the vibrancy of our heritage. The foreground is set on a backdrop of the scaffoldings in dull greys, showing the unattractiveness of the so-called ‘concrete jungle’. Other iconic features of this painting, the construction machinery in the foreground, about to demolish the bird feeder and the birds flying away, both are seemingly interwoven.
