Comments:
Shital says “The images in her paintings are a personal reflection of her inner self in relation to things around. She attempt to question or elaborate on certain notions which influence or affect her. Ideals of “Ahinsa” means non violence, nature and animal forms are incorporated in her work. While her paintings adhere to philosophical thoughts, She attempt not to lose the material aspects of painting. She  experiment using bright colours and new techniques.
These animal forms are created by a blotch of paint and thinner, giving nuances to various textures that unite to create to a whole. Conceptually the singular animal forms on paper are a step towards her canvas paintings. Jainism elaborates on the essence of beings within a single body, however minute. As such her paintings are a multiple of various forms, relating to each other, but with their unique persona. Her  works are monochromatic using black and white color. The colours signify the negative and positive space, along with various other Scholars which confuse or hide the ‘pure being’.
To conclude, her paintings are an attempt to materialise the void space which ironically elucidates a temporality and a physical presence to these metaphysical conceptions. She does not aim to make any specific statement through her work, rather she wants her work to retain and elucidate a feeling of tranquility and peace for the viewer.
