Kusum Shukla’s Self Statement
I grew up in a city surrounded by forests and hills and my travels around the world brought me even closer to Nature whom I instinctively chose to be Muse to my art and poetry.
I view the scenes before me, capturing that perception in a meaningful moment that might otherwise go unnoticed expressing poetry in colors with palette knives on canvas.
My artwork affirms my faith in God. I use strong vibrant colors indicating the force, optimism & dynamism of Creation in my expressionistic style of art works.
The paintings are an attempt to project the different stages of mental & spiritual evolution, finally attaining Nirvana & escaping the cycle of incarnations. My works also denote “life & beyond”.
They have a spiritual & philosophical essence, which is an integral component of human existence.
