Women behind Veil Collection Edition 1
We women are all covered by a veil. A veil of duty, a veil of responsibility, a veil of who we are supposed to be—a mother, a daughter, a wife, a daughter-in-law, a sister and so forth . . . What is our identity? Outsiders only see the veil—the person inside is invisible—and an unseen hidden force. This artwork is a symbol of beauty, beauty defined as strength. The strength to empower others and inspire miracles.

Women behind Veil Collection Edition 7 - Padma

Women behind Veil Collection Edition 7 - Padma
The “lotus” is translated into Sanskrit as “Padma.” It is a symbol of purity. While rooted in mud, its flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. It remains untouched by the impurities. This pattern of growth signifies the progress of the soul from the primeval mud of materialism, through the waters of experience, and into the bright sunshine of enlightenment.

#1 Female Ganesha
Lord Ganesha rides on a mouse which is his “vaahan” (meaning something that he travels on and is always next to him). This painting mainly suggests that though we think of a mouse as a small, tiny and sometimes ugly creature, but the Lord Ganesha never discriminates between anyone or thinks of anyone as better then the other and that is why the mouse has been shown larger then life showing that if God doesn’t discriminate one from other then who are “we” to do that?

Shreya Mehta

Shreya Mehta’s art reveals the key to a secret garden, a looking glass, a kaleidoscope of infinite ideas and creations. In her own words, here is what she has to say about her inspiration and her current medium: charcoal.

Transforming sketches into finished works of art always struck me as being magical. Over the years, this process has filled me with a sense of pride and accomplishment and it has proven a most amenable vehicle for transforming my inner vision into a palpable reality. Currently I am working on a charcoal series. Inspired by a recent trip through several villages of Gujarat, India, I chose the natural medium, charcoal, to represent their world. As I traveled from one humble village to another, I paused to capture a first-hand glimpse into these simple yet beautiful lives. I am a multicultural blend, growing up in Belgium, now living in New York, USA—-my roots are still in India. Globally inspired—by the traditional European art (I have a MA in Fine Arts from the Royal Academy of Arts, Belgium), I am exposed to the contemporary U.S. art movements—but I still crave my heritage. My art speaks for itself—there are multi-faceted ways to look at it . . . but the messageis simple—beauty is embodied all around us . . . feel it with your heart.

Lucy Winton

Born in 1956 in Boston, Mass., Lucy Winton began her unconventional career as an artist by becoming a paramedic in 1980 for the city of New York. As a young artist, she was breaking ground in the international art scene working with mixed media and creating earthy yet otherworldly compositions. April Gornik, a recent curator of Lucy Winton’s work, described her art as “a meditation on our relationship to each other and the greater world outside us.”

 

Reshma Shah

Reshma Shah, born and raised in India and a native of Mumbai, began painting her memories of home soon after reaching the United States in 2000. Reshma has always been very passionate about India and its rich culture and heritage. After coming to America she did two solo art shows, which were very successful. In India, she studied commerical arts at Sophia Polytechnic College. In her final year campaign she won two awards. Reshma loves to experiment with various mediums of paint but loves painting with mostly photo inks and poster paints on paper. With her art she wants to spread awareness of India and the Indian culture.
