As a foreigner living in India, my eyes were overwhelmed with the beauty of the country and the people. The women specifically amazed me with their regal elegance and strength. But the longer I stayed, the more I saw the realities of the oppression they were under. The most significantly disturbing incident occurred when we heard our neighbor screaming, only to come upon the sight of her husband killing her by dousing her with kerosene and lighting her on fire. My paintings are the story of this event and are presented in matchboxes that I found on the roadsides of Delhi.
