Gandhi Re­flec­tion

The Hamilton Spectator - - OUR PULSE - ANANYA SINGH, GRADE 8, AN­CASTER MEADOW

My collage is about Ma­hatma Gandhi. In my collage, I used the prin­ci­ples of balance, va­ri­ety, and em­pha­sis. The balance in my art is ra­dial as there is an equal amount of in­for­ma­tion through­out the space of the collage. There is va­ri­ety in the tones in the face and the back­ground colour con­trasts with Ma­hatma’s face. The em­pha­sis in the collage is Gandhi, who is placed in front of a mo­tif of peace sym­bols. I chose Ma­hatma Gandhi be­cause he fought for my coun­try us­ing peace as his weapon. Dur­ing war, he would get hurt but he would never use vi­o­lence to hurt the en­emy. He is rec­og­nized as the fa­ther of In­dia and be­cause of him, In­dia achieved in­de­pen­dence.
