New York, NY, July 25, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The moving, enthralling abstracts of Kushlani Jayasinha extract the energy of the artist’s hand and lay it bare on the canvas. Jayasinha’s oil paint covers the canvas with color and creativity, the organization at once sharply defined and open to interpretation. The works keep to earth tones and an ambiguous field of depth, allowing the feeling and composition to be wholly driven by the shape of the artist’s mark, which itself is influenced by meditation that casts its peaceful spell on the viewer through the medium of the paint.
Jayasinha’s work is deeply ingrained in her journeyman’s history. Born in Sri Lanka and a one-time physicist, she now devotes herself full-time to art in her adopted home of California. Her organic style of painting arose partly from this transition; as she describes it, “life has more meaning experienced than explained. Life is best when just being. Art takes us to this place.” Jayasinha’s work invites the viewer to enter its profoundly honest space where light, pigment, and shadow exist on a visceral level: the physical and the spiritual worlds made visible.
