Ocean Hues

‘Ocean Hues’ is my tribute to water- the chief life giving element on our planet Earth. Someone said, 'If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water’. Therefore, I have tried to capture a little bit of this magic in my paintings. Whether it is harmony, peace, joy, anger, strength, turbulence, tranquillity or any of the myriad emotions that define our existence, water still remains an all-encompassing force that can reflect each of these emotions beautifully. It could be a fleeting moment of beauty or a soothing melody or a rhythmic dance that captivates us and gives us a chance to experience this magic. Water, through its dynamism and resilience, also gives us precious life-lessons that can benefit us immensely. These paintings attempt to show the beauty and magnetism of water and the way it affects us in so many tangible and intangible ways . I hope that through these paintings I can revive admiration for nature and a sense of responsibility for keeping the resources of this planet intact.
