ArtSwati is a visual artist of Indian origin,based in London . She is the winner of the Pure Prize 2015.
My work is about touching a point where opposites meet , where the circle closes .I am interested in converting colours into light culminating in images of spiritual or luminous purity. Painting here serves as a means of communication for questions that can not be answered on an intellectual level, but can only be dealt with through conscious or subliminal experience. I explore the interaction of colour and light, perception and the effects both have on the viewer. Gradients and colors melt together softly, creating shimmers, through which it seems as if the colour is freed from the canvas's materiality, developing a life of its own. Pulsating, contracting, expanding - sometimes calming, at other times unsettling, it challenges the observers visual habits. I aim at the dissolution of all dichotomy and surrendering the separations to find a single void .
