Rajul Shah’s Artist’s Statement: “I create Art to communicate positivity, calm and spiritual peace. Having spent many years in healthcare, I have witnessed strong connections between emotional and physical well-being. The Japanese Art of Kintsugi is the foundation for the ‘Kintsugi Series’, which addresses recovery of the human condition from illness, injury and/or trauma; and the planet’s potential to heal from Climate Change.
“We can heal and evolve into improved versions of ourselves. Our planet can regenerate with renewed strength and purpose. A physical manifestation of resilience; the practice of ‘Kintsugi’ emphasizes the beauty and utility of breaks and imperfections. A vessel is repaired using tree sap and gold splicing. Traditionally applied to pottery in Japan, my artworks are representations of this concept.”
