September Monthly Display

The Livingston Public Library features the watercolor paintings of Livingston resident Gauri Walawalkar during the month of September.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT:

For me, art is freedom. It is freedom to imagine, feel and express. In this pursuit I have been trying to go from extensive planning in creating a piece to letting it take shape on the paper. 

Watercolors are an excellent medium for this exercise of being in the moment. Covering up, hiding flaws or changing what is already on paper are quite untenable in this medium. They are hard to control because they flow and interplay on paper. But the effects they create are beautifully organic. 

Art lives at three different levels, where it emerges, where it is created and when it reflects in the viewer. The creator, the media along with the creative process, and the viewer are all equally important parts of art and it is ultimately an interplay of these three elements. 

Sometimes several months pass between my paintings, but I don’t force myself to create. Instead I spend that time meditating about art and my future creations. 

I have put some of these paintings in chronological order from newest to the oldest. These are visual snippets of my art journey that started about one and a half years ago. You can see all my creations @gauri_watercolor on Instagram. 

I hope you enjoy viewing my works in this display at the Livingston Public Library. -Gauri Walawalkar
