Creating… Sustaining… Dissolving
acrylic on canvas
18 x 24 (each)

Series of these 3 paintings is based on this….
“Creating”… “Sustaining”… “Dissolving”.
The first one is “creating”… In India during Navaratri, in Bengal, they celebrate “Durga Puja”.
The first part is “creating” an idol…
The second part is “sustaining” the goddess…. by worship and celebrations…
The third part is “dissolving”… immersion of the idol.

The creating… sustaining… dissolving is a pattern that shows up every min of our life… and when I decided I wanted to paint this pattern, this idea came to mind. Thanks to Ma’s blessings it did manifest nicely.

I refer to my paintings as creations from stillness. I have found the best thing I can do as an artist is to get out of the way and let life paint what it wants to paint. I get inspiration about what each painting will be, and then, bit by bit, the general sense of it fills in, but that all comes from stillness, too.

  1. The creating… sustaining… dissolving is a pattern we see around all the time. Gradually & hopefully its beauty & completeness helps us comprehend the Stillness within Shweta, Thanks
