Artist Statement/ Description/ Method
If you want to know what a pure heart is, you've to meet 'Poopaati Anjalè'. 'Poopaati' means 'Flower Grandma' in TN, India.
Anjalè sells flowers on the pavement in my neighborhood. Once while my 1 1/2 years old daughter & I were on a walk, my little ones eyes fell on the flowers that Anjalè was selling & called out to her as 'Poopaati'. She smiled & gestured us towards her. My little one eagerly took all the flowers she liked.
Once she was satisfied with her pick, I took my purse out to pay. This is when Anjalè surprised me with her generosity & love. She didn't charge me a penny & instead said It is for the child. She can take as many flowers as she wants. It is her generous heart & beautiful smile I have attempted to capture in my quilt.
