I am a contemporary Indian Abstract Artist. Its been 35 years now since I began my Art practice. Explored various media on paper and canvas in pure media and mixed media techniques. After exploring the recognisable form, figuration, geometrics, I came into complete abstraction in the early 2000's. The form for me released itself from its surface tension, setting free a plethora of experience on paper and canvas. About 10 years ago I added still photography to my media of expression, which led further to discovering my self-expression through the moving image and so I began to create Art Videos. I will be presenting a Video installation called 'Causal Nexus' across 22ft at the Current India Art Fair, as a part of the Special Artists projects.


[Video - Kavita Jaiswal: Completion Calls for Disintegration]


My first love was painting. Initially I tried all the different mediums, which included figurative paintings with animal forms and I slowly started breaking it down into a metamorphosis of the human form and the tree. I always believed in a lot of contrast in my work and abstraction for me is the essence of real. Abstraction reaches the heart of the viewer. Once the artist is done with the canvas he moves out of the space and the painting then has its own space.
