Shri Gunasekara - The artist's dilemma
The Artist’s Dilemma is about the dichotomy between the artist's identity and their voice. To be an artist, you must express and share your ideas, morals, and questions. However, the process of expressing these ideas changes them and adds to the artist themselves. This relationship is fascinating to Gunasekara, reminding her of the idea of the question: "What came first, the chicken or the egg?"
Shri Gunasekara's illustration ethos is about investigating conventional themes in unconventional ways to familiarise audiences with new and progressive ideas. Her extensive work surrounding colour and narrative structure allows for the creation of dynamic and inviting work.
