TARA SHAKTI - Artist
Born into a family of artists, Tara Shakti describes her gift of painting as something so inherent that it feels second nature to her, almost like a friend expressing joys and sorrows, asking questions about life and death, love and loss, pain and pleasure, as well as other metaphysical mysteries that have inflamed her interest in the afterlife and other dimensions. As an artist, Shakti feels she must explore these themes that are universal and timeless in our quest to understand the meaning of life and the definition of death in its finality and fulfillment. Tara Shakti has developed a concept of style in art that peers into the realm of dimensional visions where light and shadow engages the rage to exist in pain or in pleasure, in dreams or in memory. She crosses over into artwork for the soul and psyche of serious thinkers and presents a profound glimpse into the vivid imagination of a visionary artist possessing that rare gift for pushing the boundaries of conceptual and impressionistic art. American Journalist William L. Wright wrote, “Her metaphysical art offers art enthusiasts a peek into the world of existentialism and address universal themes that still haunts humanity — where are the dead, are we alone in the universe, why do we suffer, can we rise from the burning ashes, when will equal rights for women exist worldwide?” Shakti’s art raises these questions and many others while featuring spectacular images, some being seen as if through the lens of a tearful, weeping, watery gaze — as if the viewer is crying while seeing hazy, mesmerizing scenes forced upon them. It is these powerful revelations — expressed so eloquently in her art — that makes Shakti an artist for the ages. Her ability to translate her subconscious into emotional art has produced a soul-searching collection of artwork from the beyond.
