Artist Ami Patel Artist Statement

My works are inspired by the nature and five elements of life & the inevitability of these elements in our life. This natural balance that enables our very existence. The bright and bold colours of nature reflect my mood. My freedom of thought and passion for the act of painting are expressed through the confident strokes and colours of nature. I boldly progresses with every painting - going beyond the visual world into one of self-attainment and joy. I work with different metals as brass, copper and aluminum on wood symbolizing the oneness of my works with nature.

In my works the Bindu represents the seed, the spark, the focused thought, which gives birth to creation in the physical and mental realms. It is the symbol for consciousness. The point of pure potential. We are the Bindu within the universe.

After all we are nothing but part of this enormous nature, the universe. Just a tiny part.
