“I paint to explore the power of hands, the destruction of ego, and the beauty of the mind, in order to reveal the light of a universal Soul.” – Veru Narula
The cyclic rhythm of the universe, of nature, of history informs my work and drives my creativity. I derive my sense of home and community from this understanding that, everything that once was and everything that will be, all stems from from the same source; it diverges and then converges, and then repeats itself. It’s The Big Bang Theory. It’s scientific; it’s philosophic. It’s a sense of unity and synchronicity amidst chaos that emerges through my lens of humanity and nature and onto the canvas. I try to produce works that express a desire for freedom of expression, existence, and faith. My art is personal, with a balance of global and universal sensibilities. It binds together global concerns with those more insular, local and familiar. I create with a respect and preservation of the traditions of oil painting, while incorporating mixed and digital media in various formats, integrating the figurative and the abstract; I am to create a space where the old, the new, and the developing each has a space to interact equally and contribute freely.
