“I am a self-taught painter working in water-based media, mainly acrylic. My style is based on the non-objective modern expressionist movement that originated in post-WWII New York. I work in an intuitive manner exploring line, form and color, but without a goal in mind.
“My upbringing in colorful India, and my training as a physician and scientist, inspires me to meld colors and shapes on the canvas to create organic forms that spontaneously engage viewers. The finished painting evolves from the layers of paint I add to each piece. Some works may have as many as half a dozen layers that add to the perception of depth.”Though the combination of lines and shapes may be perceived in my art by the viewer as a certain object, this is rarely by design. It is an indication that the viewer has engaged on multiple levels beyond just the immediate visual interest of the piece.”
