ARTIST STATEMENT: Music evokes the body to respond to a rhythm and become an embodiment of exuberance, expression and movement. My idea of painting is a rhythmic performance with music that creates a whole new language of abstract harmony, as a means of expressing music in visual form. The inspiration of Indian performance and various music selections inspire a language of expression, harmonious elements, and abstract figures which form patterns on my canvases.
My paintings invite the viewer to wander through a universe of color and pattern in motion - a world of energy in music manifested in visual form. In the small universe I altered and accepted life of being, from everyday appreciation that gets created on canvas or in my drawings.
The idea is to interpret the content of the music and express it via visual images; to create an environment of joy and passion conveying a feeling of dance and festivity while using the psyche’s imagination.
