Artist's description:

Ready to hang; oil on stretched canvas. I referenced a b&w enigmatic photo of Hungarian-Indian artist Amrita Shergil for this painting. It is a textured portrait with a range of blues grays, indigo and green that mingle in the quick brush srokes and create interesting contrasting color fields. Amrita is referred to as the Frida Kahlo of India because of her boldness in work and personal life, striking looks and a dizzying career in a short life.

Blue Smile My art is a reflection of all things going on inside me. I internalize my environment and the critical elements show up in my work. These include abstracts, figurative compositions and realism. As a transplant to the US from India I experienced the angst caused by cultural and physical dislocation; with experience and time, the tensions between the pull of the homeland to the adopted land continue to shift and play into my work. Several recent paintings deal with my experience with change and the rate of transition in the 21st century. The mashing of global cultures and thought can be felt in the bewildering cast and the unprecedented etiquettes in several works. River of no Return, Immigrants etc. are part of the recent series that project the angst of entering a new era in human existence.
