Monica Rao

My work is very abstract and intuitive, while also integrating what I learned as a child in India. I meditate before I paint. The subject of the artwork is spiritual or meditative, as I am in this state when I paint. Much of it mirrors the beautiful experiences from my out-of-body experience, which drew me toward a magnificent white light and cocooned me in a warm embrace that showed me unconditional love and eternal peace. It showed me that I was a part of the universe—I was a part of full and united consciousness.The artwork transpires from swift and sweeping movements that incorporate heightened colors and intense textures to communicate—much like a classical dancer. The creations take on a life of their own. The painting communicates when it needs more love and attention. Sometimes I don’t even know how a painting came to be—it’s like something deeper than my consciousness brings it to life.
