Schooling 2, by Nissa Riyas
Acrylics on Canvas / 60 cms x 60 cms
Both these paintings are inspired by the artist’s visit to Mauritius and her observation of a group of fish swimming in the same direction and not colliding even when changing direction suddenly. This made the artist curious and gave her a line of thought about the school of fish. She captured it in her mind as the same childhood rule mothers taught youngsters – to stay in a group because there is safety in numbers.
