Malani, Nalini b.1946 / Time
about this work
In Time, the earthworm which appears in many of Malni's works resembles an umbilical cord around a severed neck of a woman. Her helplessness is imminent with her posture, as if succumbing to a giant serpent.The spotted background as in Warriors and green worm looks like an enlarged blood cell or a tumorous gland. The application of color gives it a feeling of a sphere than just a direct two dimensional format.
