artist statement

Throughout my life, my instincts have compelled me to return to art to express my observations and emotions on canvas. I create expressionist art with complex abstract forms in my paintings, valuing expression over perfection.The vibrant colors of my native India are central to my self-expression. While particular colors in India may be symbolic, I use (and exploit) them purely for expressive purposes. Dynamic lines also dominate. Gestural strokes come naturally and might emphasize emotions or tension among various elements. With color and rhythm as primary tools, the paintings carry a hidden meaning, an added level of information, or mystical symbolism. Each painting should be contemplated over time. Look beyond the surface to connect with a fragment that resonates on an emotional level.
