Hands of Love

Using colored pencils and mixed media, artist Tanmaya Bingham created “Pride,” which earned second at Bradley’s 37th International Print and Drawing Exhibition.

As a child, Bingham’s Nigerian friend Ernest rescued a sick baby black panther and nursed it back to health before returning it to the wild. “I found his story touching and wanted to find a non-literal way of displaying his love for this creature, without it being associated to any political parties,” she said. “Therefore, I chose to make it a black ambiguous void, left open to the viewer’s interpretation.”
