How one artist serves her spirit and soul by creating abstract art
Being boxed up is the worst fear for me.
The day at the workshop started with a task to paint a typical landscape that I was not motivated to finish. Abstract art seemed much more fascinating and appealing to me. The web of colors and textures inspired me to create. This art arises from the nothingness of a blank canvas, without any inkling about the final outcome. It intends not to represent a physical object, but rather to move away from it, breaking away from any usual depiction.
Moving into the abstract space was a journey into the unknown. I ventured into this world with my art teacher who was a guiding light for me.
I love artworks that impart positivity, and my passion for the abstract lures me to go deeper and deeper, liberating me, serving both my soul and spirit.
Working on layers upon layers of texture helps me create artworks that are totally unique. When I begin, I have no idea what the final effect will be — it is pure intuition which guides me through the creative process. Some days are productive and some days are not. If I am not satisfied with the way my art progresses, I return to the work after some time has passed, with a totally different perspective. At times when I face a creative block, I find solitude to let my soul speak to my heart.
Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment.
~ Claude Monet
Color speaks deeply to my soul. It paves the way for my creativity. Some days I’m inspired to use bright contrasting colors and some days to use subtle colors. It depends on the creative flow.
Sometimes shades of a single color is what the work is about. Being a positive person at heart, I created Spring, an artwork that was a riot of hues. I used my fingers instead of brushes to feel the colors and textures and the warmth of different shades. It was an uplifting experience!
As I am creating, a kind of soliloquy takes place in my soul that helps ignite my spirit. There is a sway between my soul and heart that leads to perfect happiness and deep satisfaction.
