Black & White Artwork - Drawing Samridh Mukhiya Meloncholia II - 2017 Pen and ink on paper 24 X 36 inches $4,400 Awarded “Third place for Adult Original artwork” at 2020 Texas Mental Health Awareness Creative Arts Contest April 23, 2020 -Artist's interpretation- This is the second one in the series of Melancholia. It is a subjective portrait. The hair as waves represent the state of the mind, relentless, vacillating and boundless like the sea. The shell of the individual is withering away exposing the inner self. There sits atop the person's head; a well in the sea, a motif I use metaphorically and periodically to represent the means to an end. Here, the well is the only element casting light inside. Within, the person is drowning as he is entangled in his own sea of thoughts and perception, a habit we all tend to fall victim to. The world inside him is also crumbling slowly, the stable elements he was accustomed to rely on are sinking. But that is not the first time the person inside has drowned. As seen on the bottom where the heart resides are parts of him that have sunk on impaled sticks, representation of the hurt endured, the wounds that have had lasting effects, moments of pain that have remained, with every event and moment that has chipped away the mind. This person dies a little every time. There will come a moment, when there will be no bits and pieces left to sink. An emptiness that can only witness the fragmented corpses of oneself, that once was. In this cosmic ocean of existence, some of us drown, maybe the current is too strong, maybe it's too cold or maybe we've been swimming for way too long and are tired from helping others or offering all that we have. For our loved ones who struggle with mental health what would you do to help? Very much like the one life we have, we have only one breath left when we drown and sometimes help can come a little too late. How deep? More than a breath."

Introspective Art Contest Best in Show by Samridh Mukhiya Things I am grateful for 2018 Pen and ink on paper 30X40 $3475
Samridh Mukhiya Artist Statement "This piece was made during a time in my life when I was struggling to find reasons and inspiration to go on. I wanted to create a piece that would act as a personal mantra with a positive meaning. A constant reminder of the things I am grateful for. The head represents an individual's mind in disarray. It's divided and falling apart. What holds it together are these hands reaching out to provide support in varying fashion. The hands are different in size and in the manner in which they are holding the person together. This represents the nature of care and presence, a representation of the people and elements in our life that act as the pillar of support. Some hands are large indicating the effect or the presence, nearness or time. Some hands are dirty representing how even with their own personal struggle they are trying their best to be there. Some hands are tiny and are reaching out from far away representing people who are there for us regardless of the physical distance and their inability to be there for you all the time. There is also a hand that is holding withered flowers, symbolizing people who have been there for you with the best intention from the very beginning, They have been holding on for so long the flowers have withered away. Yet, they're still holding on."
"The Things I Am Grateful For" is created within the series, 'Mantra'
