Abhishek Bachchan said “’Shunya’ is understood to be the most minimum denominator for any existence, experience or even realization. Yet, ‘Shunya’ is all encompassing; can perhaps embrace all the world’s possibilities in any field. A person as young as Radhika endeavoring to journey across from ‘Shunya to Bodhisattva/self-realization’ in her paintings is a formidable task for anyone to reflect upon. Hence, instead of daring to do so, I suppose, I should just state as to how humbled I feel in having the opportunity to inaugurate her quest in spiritual creativity, through her outstanding work”
Shining the spotlight on the beautiful strokes of the paintings, “And The Flowers Showered” is an exhibition is an expression of Radhika’s personal quest of her artistic creativity. The proceeds of the exhibitions will go to the NGO Akanksha Foundation which helps the children of Akanksha Foundation to be equipped with the education and skills needed to lead empowered lives. Radhika is personally attached to these children of the Akanksha Foundation and is regularly doing something fruitful for them.
Radhika Goenka Said said “The exhibition is a metaphor of my personal quest as an artist from emptiness to fulfillment to hopefully a higher realm…of artistic creativity.
The images energized my growth…and their shapes evolved to reflect my dreams. I hope that you too find them as inspiring as I did and that they inspire you to move onwards and upwards in your personal journey”
“And The Flowers Showered,’ is proud to be associated with an NGO where art is not just an activity, it’s a movement…a movement which is joyous as well as divine.
