ARTWORK SUMMARY


Ninteen Eighty-Four


This artwork depicts the Indian Government's military attack (code-named 'Operation Blue Star' ) on the Sikh community's most holiest of shrines, 'Harmandir Sahib' (The Golden Temple), in 1984.  

The painting was motivated by the artists' desire to redress the inadequate and biased media coverage of the event at the time which largely towed the official Government propaganda line - playing down the extent of physical damage caused to the holy site, as well as the fact that the main casualties were the thousands of pilgrims caught in the crossfire who had come to pay homage on one of the most important religious days in the Sikh calendar.  

The diagionals created within the composition by the steep line-up of soldiers (right) and the specific orientation of the square temple complex, lends to the visual disturbance and chaos of the scene. The surrounding borders of the painting hem in the fleeing crowds, enhancing the feeling of claustrophobia and revealing the futility of their attempts to escape.

Through various symbolic details, the painting reflects on the suffering and personal sense of injustice felt by Sikhs world-wide and how they regarded 'Operation Blue Star' as a betrayal of their proven loyalty and sacrifice in the defence of India throughout history.

The work also has a universal dimension - placing this atrocity within the wider context of the suffering of innocent people and human rights abuses globally due to political greed and corruption.
