About sujata tibrewala

I believe that "If it touches your heart, it is art...."

The universality of human emotion, our eternal love hate story with our mothers, both the biological one and the natural one is what inspires me..

Having had the good fortune to live and work amidst various cultures and nationalities, my work tends to anchor more and more on what is common in all of us. The fact that we are all humans, that we all want to be make it all right, and yet are selfish and feel trapped in our egos, wants and prejudices. My art just tries to bring out the failings and celebration of it all...

My goal is to visually express the quantum consciousness which binds us all at a much deeper level than we can imagine.
I feel blessed to have an eye which can make me enjoy the smallest pleasures and life and be sensitive to the pain which others may find normal.

I do not believe that there is anything like purity in this material world. Even the purest of love, "mother's love" is filled with expectations. The duality of life, the positive walking hand in glove with the negative, the non permanence of beauty and death being the only truth always plagues my thoughts. The futility of trying to hold a moment is what draws me. My goal is to bring out this restlessness on canvas.
