Shadows of the Inner Self: Portraits of my Soul
On my latest collection of 17 paintings

I wanted to paint the moments of joys and distresses that are experienced by our soul through abstract paintings, a medium of art which is very much apt for such spiritual expressions.
In these collection of paintings, I tried to catch various moments experienced by my soul or consciousness or inner self, and expressed them through variety of color hues, forms and textures.
In some paintings, I have caught the dark and heavy moments my soul has experienced. In some other paintings, I have painted the storms around my soul.
Sometimes, my soul is in utter peace and lightness and this is expressed in greenish, bluish and whitish hues that are delivered with brightness and brilliance.
However, my soul, depicted as a meditating human form in these paintings, is accepting all these heavy, dark and stormy moments as well as joyful, peaceful and lighter moments, without coming out or running away from its meditative state. And so, these are created in one theme: “Shadows of the Inner Self: Portraits of my Soul”
These paintings have tried to paint my own self or soul and its blissful and painful moments that are experienced as a spiritual practitioner under the Heartfulness Way, under the direct guidance of our beloved Masters Chariji Maharaj and Daaji Maharaj, and under the subtle guidance of great Masters, Lalaji Maharaj and Babuji Maharaj.
I submit all these paintings to the divine feet of these monumental Masters who work tirelessly for the wellness of people on this Earth who are living their lives amidst uncountable pains, struggles and pollutions.
My idea is to full use of these modern art form, for speedy spiritual growth of myself and my readers who can see and enjoy the rhythm and music emanated from these paintings through various color hues, mysterious forms and stunning textures.
I express my sincere thanks to my painting masters, Mr. Manogaran, a professor of Fine Arts College in Kumbakonam, and its Principal and a great painter, Mr. Baskaran and another great artist from Madurai, Mr. Kallandhiri Murugesan.
I express my hearty gratitude to my literature guru and a great Tamil literary writer, Mr. Thanjai Prakash, who is no more now. I have learned a lot from him for about 10 years, I and I went for a training in painting in 1995, 23 years ago, only under the guidance of him.
All these paintings have been published in my blog sites https://paintingsofswaran.blogspot.com/, and https://paintingsofswaran.tumblr.com/ and also in Google+ and Facebook.
I request my readers to enjoy these paintings with your hearts, immerse in them contemplating and meditating on these fresh forms, varying textures and unique color combinations.
I wish to express my thanks to my blog readers, facebook friends, tumblr friends, G+ community, twitter friends and others for their constant support in this refreshing endeavour.
