My paintings are a personal expression of my lifelong fascination with the visual effects of color as revealed using bold colors across an array of objects or elements of the landscape. My goal as a representational painter is to attempt to portray the infinite beauty of color not only in every object itself but also in the interaction between objects, their shadows, and the surrounding space as light travels over and amongst them.
To me, a true work of art can be described as an intersection between complexity and simplicity. Art must be filled with strong emotional content and be based on the perception, expectations and experiences of the artist. I always make every effort to create my paintings based on these three concepts, but most importantly, art must be timeless, with as much intrinsic relevance in today’s world as in the future.
The most obvious attribute of my work is the use of color as a means of expression. In addition, I enhance the color content of each canvas with touches of light and shadows by using texture. For the most part, I rely on colors as a major element in projecting the emotional content in my works. One of the major objectives in creating my paintings is in my desire to fulfill an emotional response, rather than focusing on the subject matter. I always choose to present my work in strong, bold colors, with an overall reliance on lines and forms to give it its distinctive nature. Through the use of these colors and forms, the subject is transformed into its essential, formative concepts, both of simple and complex nature.
As an artist, I am constantly searching for diverse formats to express myself. This search has not only enabled me to create artworks that are unique and relevant to modern trends but has also enhanced my aspiration of being innovative and resourceful, by creating imaginative, thought-provoking pieces. It has always been my desire that every piece of art I create will portray the qualities that will enlighten, deepen and ultimately enrich the human race. My aspiration is that my art will contribute to the creation of a better world for all to enjoy.
Having painted in many landscape and natural themes, and mostly acrylic and watercolor media, most recently I have taken an interest in connecting to my roots and painting some Indian themed paintings including people, places and folk art – I am just getting started in this area but do feel really connected and excited about this new theme I am pursuing.
