"My art is my search for the moments beyond the ones of self knowledge. It is the rhythmic fantasy; a restless streak which looks for its own fulfillment! A stillness that moves within! An intense search for my origin and ultimate identity". - Meena

The Meaning of Art: Artist and Poet Meena Chopra

Artist and Poet Meena Chopra has just released her new book: "She: The Restless Streak". Meena, Ivy Reiss, and Hugh Reilly discuss why art often doesn't pay. Why doesn't society value art and reward with money? Is art valueless? Or is its value beyond money itself and why?

She! The Restless Streak She! The Restless Streak by Meena Chopra GOODREADS

She! The Restless StreakShe! The Restless Streak by Meena Chopra

“SHE!”, the life force, the moving fearless female energy, subconsciously and unknowingly, has always been a predominant part of my art depicting genesis, whether it is in abstract forms, figurative forms or in the forms of verse.

I get totally spell bound, whenever I see the sun dipping down into the glory of the golden skyline on the Canadian landscape, specifically so during the mesmerising Canadian fall with its undulating colours. The wild enchantress, the ever entrancing mystery of the nature, starts casting its enormous spell on my very being, seducing each and every passing moment of my life. And then, the eternal agony of human desire within, starts longing ceaselessly, striving to capture the very essence of the fleeting time.

The unknown reality, the mysterious, magical and enigmatic SHE! The Restless Streak - grabs the centre stage of all my imaginations with her splendour and vivacity; synergising every split second of my existence, revering the glory and the very nature of the everlasting stark female element of the entire universe, with all its lights and shadows, joys and pains. And then, SHE, starts her formidable journey descending on my blank canvases and sheets of paper, toning, tinting the stark lines and forms and at times colouring and filling my bare and impassive words with her unbound magical touch.

SHE is the “effect” constantly in search of its “cause”, the cosmic existence as well as liberation. SHE drastically and restlessly seeks for the mysterious quietude, the hidden power beyond this universe. SHE is the principle of growth and the change. SHE is the provider and the abundance. SHE is the one who offers nourishment, warmth, and security. SHE is the root of every experience of life. SHE is the active energy that both creates and dissolves. SHE is the basic nature of intelligence by which the universe exists and functions.

Original paintings are both in dry pastels on paper and acrylic on canvas in various sizes. A couple of them are digital also. About six poems in this collection are restructured versions from my earlier collection of poems “Ignited Lines”. A couple of poems are translations of my poems from my Hindi collection of poems in Subah Ka Suraj ab Mera Nahin Hai (An Adieu to the Dawn)
I also plan to bring out a translation of this book in Hindi in the near future

Meena Chopra's new creation “SHE! The Restless Streak - Poetry & Art”

Full Article: Generally About Books
"In her new book of poetry & art “SHE! The Restless Streak” Meena Chopra reveals the vibrant female force in the human element. Usually, an abstract painter and a nature poet Meena’s works in this book are semi-figurative female forms which complement her thematic poems on abstract female energy.
Her poetry has a unique ethereal quality and powerful story-like imagery which engages the reader to unfold the mystique hidden behind each and every work whether a poem or a painting. The book is both a visual and reader's delight".
