About Shikha Rawat
About my artworks:
I try to represents the women in my paintings as I feel. As a woman, I can show their life in a better way. At the same time, I want to display all the chakras of life and display all those events happening in life.
All the chakras of life teach us to live something like, (Mooladhara, Khushina, Manipur, Ahanta, Vishuddha, Anjana, Sahasra). All the chakras are mixed with each other and all these chakras are in harmony with each other. I want to know how to live life through these chakras & how we want to live and how to live. I want to show as a woman.
My medium is mostly charcoal because charcoal is my favorite medium. In that medium, I can display myself very well and present my paintings in the right direction.All chakras have their own special meaning and these chakras are present in many parts of the body and give us energy and with this energy motivate us to grow with energy to live life.And at the same time if I talk about the technique of my paintings, I mostly use dry medium. I use mostly compressed and dry charcoal & dry soft pastel, pencil, black charcoal, pencil charcoal. Eraser somewhere and display different effects in it.Creating such art work makes me feel a very divine and pleasant feeling, through which I can see the thoughts going on in my mind and can show the status of women in society and the way they live their lives.
