Before starting the “Love” series of paintings, I thought about all the turmoil happening in our world today. In India and other countries I am saddened to hear about women being brutally raped and murdered, while people watch and do nothing about the crimes being committed. When you listen to the news updates, you hear about religious conflict, civil wars, bombs exploding and all the fighting going on between nations, political parties, and people.
I was compelled to create symbolic paintings about the potential within all of us to find love and peace within our hearts and souls. I created the paintings “Turmoil,” “Love”, “Love in the Air,” and “Love and Peace.” Paintings that symbolically speak through color, form and shape what the words, turmoil, love and peace depict.
