I shut my mind
"To master our lives is the Art of Life.
Her paintings are not thought-out or planned, but are the spontaneous expressions of her inner being which reveal themselves as sudden flashes or visions in her minds eye or as an overpowering urge to create, to bring out something from the depths of her being that she may look at and say,
As Carl Jung, said, "Spirit lies behind the collective unconscious and, of course, art reveals the unconscious." Art is born as a result of the union of spiritual energy with the Divine.
When we are creating anything, we are taping into the Source. Thus, the creation of art is one of man's most direct connections to God not only as his silent and universal language, but also as the manifestation of his Superior Energy Force. Art, prayer and meditation are the most effective tools we have to unite us to heaven and earth.
Art is a silent worship.
“It is not about what we see with our eyes but what we feel with our hearts and see with the invisible inner eye. The true appreciation of art is how deeply it reaches into our souls with one language of the heart. If a piece of art can make a person stop, wonder and question his own reality and reflection, then art has the joyous property of sanctifying the expression of the inner sensitivity of the unconsciousness.”
Her works are primarily in acrylics, but she also likes to work in mixed media.
“Don't try to understand my work with your mind, experience it!
Born in India, Hufreesh grew up in a spiritual background. So Art has always been a way of communicating and connecting with the Unknown.
She has painted ever since she was old enough to hold a brush and continues to paint her way through Life.
For the past 12 years, she has been working and living in the inspiring and often challenging atmosphere of Auroville, an international township, in Tamil Nadu, where men and women of all countries aspire to live in peace and progressive harmony, above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. An experiment in Human Unity. A place that fulfills her need to dedicate her life to a nobler cause, to something that gives her a chance to be a part of a bigger picture , that in her small way helps humanity as a whole !
And from that deep innate need for world harmony, springs forth her Art, which expresses harmony, joy, love, peace, beauty and the everlasting wonder and awe of this magnificent Divine Creation !
Hufreesh believes that her creativity is not limited and should not be limited to just painting, but to each and every aspect of life. And so your entire life becomes a piece of Art!
Art is Life and Life is Art!
She has had shows all over India, UK, Singapore, and Tokyo and most recently she was invited and participated in the prestigious Florence Biennale, Italy.
And this year she participated in the International Art festival in Marseille, France, then in Izmir Biennale in Turkey and finally in Venice Pre-Biennale in Venice, Italy.
