It has always been my dream to make art that is thought provoking; sparking inner reflection.
We, as humans, search for the wisdom that will shape us to be the best versions of ourselves. In my own efforts at self-improvement, a spiritual upbringing and study of Sanskrit literature guide me toward a path of introspection.
My contemporary large pieces Samsara– The Cosmic Tree, The Un-free Will, Eigen Face and The Inside Job are part of a new body of work. This series explores the cycle of life and lessons to be learned in our life time. Deeply rooted in ancient philosophy, I attempt exploring visual story telling of tales from Indian Mythology and their significance today’s times.
This new phase of work from 2019, is starkly different from my older pieces. Seascapes, landscapes and flowers painted till 2018 may look very different from the new work. But they gave me the confidence to take on conceptual art.
Apart from these styles, I also enjoy painting outdoors. Taking my easel and paints to the streets of Seattle in Autumn, or a hike in the Cascades, I do enjoy painting outdoors when the weather permits.As a member of the Urban Sketchers group in Seattle, I paint everyday scenes on location in my journal daily. Doing this regularly has given me the skills needed to grab a quick sketch during my travels and trips.
