This has verily been observed by the seers of the truth, after studying the nature of both. The above quote from the Bhagavat Gita (Chapter 2, Verse 16) captures the essence of life, and of eternity. While it captures the idea that life is fleeting, it also simultaneously says that life is everlasting: when one form of life disappears, another takes its place, and the cycle of life continues. Unending, eternal, everlasting, while being fleeting, transient, and ephemeral at the same time. When one life form ends, another is ready to take its place. Life goes on. Any walk around the city of Singapore shows this power of life and death in a glorious fashion in the tropical rainforest that weaves through the city. Lush green trees do not live in isolation. They have for company ferns, orchids, lichens and moss growing on top of them, covering them from top to bottom. These ferns, then give life support to seeds that fall from the original tree, and as the original tree falls off the grid, the new tree growing in the fern bush is strong enough to take its place: the eternal cycle. The presence of moss, lichen and orchids adds to this riot of colors and textures. Shades of greens and browns, are interrupted by the splash of red, purple, blue, orange, and virtually any color imaginable. There are parts that are as smooth as marble, and some that put the ragged edges of mountains to shame. That is the microcosm of life, and the inspiration of my work. In my paintings I try to capture this joie de vivre. The burst of color, of texture, of growth and decay, of life and death, of happiness and sorrow, all independent of each other, but all a part of a larger reality. Separate and together. All at the same time.

Swati is an Indian abstract expressionist artist based in Singapore. The endless possibilities of color, texture, shape, the orderliness in the seeming disorderliness of nature inspire Swati’s art, and find a voice in her work through the use of acrylic and mixed media on canvas and paper. Her art practice is exploratory and process driven. Her delicate yet strong compositions unfold in layers through the use of vivid colors and abstract forms and open up the infinite possibilities of connections via the explorations of natural surroundings and human emotions. She has been trained at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore. Artist Statement: I make abstract paintings that celebrate the subtleties and expressiveness of colors and marks, the symbolism of shape, the depth of layers and a sense of discovery. These paintings are inspired by my surroundings, by fleeting memories, and by unspoken words and wonderment. They are an expression of my musings where the process matters more than the end result. I work primarily with acrylic paint and other drawing mediums like pencils, charcoal, oil pastels and ink. I love exploring color and its materiality. Abstraction gives me the freedom to spontaneously express my thoughts on the canvas. The possibility of stumbling upon something unexpected as I work on a painting keeps bringing me back to my studio every single day. It brings a sense of joy and belonging. These paintings illustrate the conversations I have with myself, and I hope they speak to you too in some way.
