In April 2019 I experienced a stroke symptom (TIA) which made me feel unstable and anxious. I could not focus or think straight for the first six months. During that time there was a call for submission for artwork and the theme was Gathering. The inspiration for this painting comes from my book shelf as it was when I took this picture. My intention was to paint a gathering of books and as the painting progressed, I was still not feeling well I decided to change the title of books to reflect my life journey. Here you will see the books and subject matter which influenced my life, the places I have visited; and the places and countries I have journeyed and worked till date. This painting is my biography depicted on a painting.
Below is my artist statement:
It can be said that we begin our Life’s journey with a blank canvas. What we choose to paint on that canvas is bound only by means, opportunity, imagination or sheer will power and determination. An A-Z Encyclopedia of subjects and interests lie in wait – we just need to reach out and open the pages of the chapters that fuel our passions.
The gathering of books on the top shelf are what I have picked from the vast array of options that Life has offered. Yes, my hands may have lingered along the spine of many a book, but these are the ones that have most stimulated my curiosity, deepened my understanding, fed my spirit and calmed my soul. I know that I will add on to this gathering of books as I continue on my journey of learning. What books have you gathered in your journey through Life?
