Jayanthi Moorthy

Jayanthi moorthy Jayanthi Moorthy is an artist whose work contains deep spiritual elements with a well of vibrant colors and energies.

She explains,  "I try to depict the material and the metaphysical aspects of life. For the material aspect, I use subjects from nature, as I perceive their organic forms, texture, lines and colors. For the metaphysical aspects, I draw inspiration from the inner spirituality that manifests in the everyday lives of Asian women. I enjoy depicting their social, cultural and spiritual conflicts. They display a mixture of beauty, strength and weakness.

Each canvas is a message, composed from calligraphy, acrylics, oil pastels, ink and paper collages, and made with non-artist tools (like a comb, the broom, a stub, bare hands etc.). The heavy textures and vibrant colors are probably narrative of my responsiveness to the varying cultures of the east and west. My canvases are longish, un-stretched pieces of cloth and paper that can be rolled away like a scroll that is carrying a message."
