ABOUT ARTIST JAYA JAVERI
I have always loved painting themes which invite you, my viewer, to walk into my canvas and explore its mysterious interiors and depths.
Perspective, a feeling of space and depth are what set my paintings apart.
There are mysterious nooks and corners to be explored in old ancestral homes, temples, palaces and forts, there are foliage lined pathways or steps leading into the unknown, there are rows of welcoming deck chairs on the beach, there are distant horizons as you stand at the waters edge gazing at its different hues, there are deep forests offering shade or rooftops disappearing into the distance.
I paint mainly with the palette knife to achieve different textures on the canvas using several layers of paint.
Light and shadow play an important part in my canvasesI use the play of light to heighten the feeling of perspective and breathe life into my paintings.
I like to use colours that are bright and happythe moods I create are positive and upbeat.
