Acrylic painting Blood Bangles by Denise Gracias

Blood Bangles

2019 - Acrylic - 48" x 36" x 1.5"
This painting was created for the exhibition, "Explorations in Child Labour".  Child labour is a huge problem in countries like India.  Glass bangles are worn by females from childhood to adulthood.  However, some (not all) of these bangles are made by little finger that work with sharp instruments, doing tedious work under dim lights. These children are not well-taken care of, to say the least. They are denied schooling and a better future. The bangles they produce are sold quite cheaply, with them paying the difference with their tired eyes and bloody fingers.
