“My paintings are inspired by places, people and their unique stories. I’m equally inspired by nature and everyday marvels of colors, textures and light effects that we experience. My story is definitely a tale of two states (of mind) - my life as an American and my Indian roots. I paint as a response to a spontaneous feeling or sheer beauty of a subject, and that is reflected in my choice of diverse subjects, style, techniques and composition. Invariably some paintings tend to have a connection to the verve and vibrancy of India.
Through my abstract and representational paintings, I strive to evoke an emotional and introspective experience for viewers. Each brushstroke and color choice is an expression of my inner world, translating intangible thoughts and emotions into tangible visual forms.
Ultimately, my goal is to create a visual language that transcends words and resonates with the viewer's emotions, memories, and imagination. I hope my paintings serve as a medium for introspection, allowing individuals to find solace, inspiration, and a renewed sense of wonder in the interplay of abstraction and representation." - Meera Agarwal CLICK HERE to read the entire Artist Statement
