About Meera Agarwal

Rye (NY) based Meera Agarwal is a visual artist and teacher. Meera has been painting for three decades and works in oil, acrylic & mixed media. Her artwork is routinely juried into shows in Westchester & Fairfield counties. “I’m influenced by all that I experience, unafraid, I pretty much paint as a response to a spontaneous reaction, an emotion or sheer beauty of a subject, and that reflects in my choice of diverse subjects, style, techniques and compositions.”

Inspiration for Sumaq:
My art is inspired by nature, my native India and travels. Sometimes I gravitate toward my subjects due to a connect to the verve and vibrancy of India. This is one such instance. Sumaq is inspired by my Peru travels. Sumaq (“beautiful” or “good” in the Peruvian language Quechua) is a painting of a shepherdess I came across in Chinceros. Her colorful shawl and the way she seemed so much in control of her terrain was an immediate draw for me. These ladies of the Andes exude a silent strength. At 13,000 ft., the breathtaking (no pun intended) landscape equally competes for attention. Using oil paint was a conscious choice to highlight the rich, intricate fabric of the traditional attire and at the same time representing the scenery harmoniously.
