Kusum Shukla-Self Statement
My 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. I use strong vibrant colors to indicate my faith in God & the force, optimism & dynamism of creation in my expressionistic style of art works.
I view my works as poetry written in colors. Art is like meditation to me. It can make me transcend this world to sublime divinity. The dynamism of hope & optimism – the sensation of upward movement in my work is symbolic of that.
