Tsunami Drawing

Amrita Das, The Tsunami in Sri Lanka, 2005, ink on paper, 30 x 22 inches. Via Bellwether Gallery.

This  is a drawing I had seen some time after the Tsunami of 2004.  After viewing all of the recent footage in Japan I still feel that Amrita Das did an amazing job of showing the horrific upheaval of everyday life of all victims of a Tsunami.  Just another indicator of the power of art.  I think that we have a responsibility as artists to document what is going on .
