As an artist, the perfect symmetry of Mt. Fuji was evident to Rajul from the beginning. A dormant volcano, the mountain can be considered a giver and taker of life. The reverence of “Fuji-san” by the Japanese people is an expression of love and respect. After living in Japan for 5 years, Rajul has come to appreciate this and offers her own mystical interpretations of Fuji-San in The Fuji Collection.
Rajul’s artwork is heavily influenced by her Indian heritage and time spent living and studying art in Japan. The richness of India with its festive colors and the aesthetic use of negative space in Japanese Brush Painting allow her compositions to have unique expressions of color and space.
There is a consistent evolution of artistic expression as Rajul experiments across mixed media to create texture and layers of color, integrating a variety of materials including mica, acrylic, oil, gold, silver and/or copper. Blending techniques across contemporary and traditional mediums are perfected. The result allows for a dynamic interaction of light and color between the spectator and the painting.
