My daily life is very organized and structured, as it needs to be for a mother of two young children. My painting goes in the opposite direction, an uninhibited approach with an imperfect look. I am inspired by color, and the infinite ways it can be used to convey emotion. I like to choose bold hues and work with acrylic paint and palette knives to create depth, texture and balance. Although my work pulls from personal experiences, New York City life and landscapes, primarily it is an attempt to capture my mood and energy.
If energy is the ability to cause change and emotion is the state of consciousness where deep feelings are experienced, then the work of abstract visual artist Kamiesha Garbadawala embodies these driving forces through the intensity in each piece she creates. Using heavy body acrylic paint, Kamiesha conveys the complexity of her moods through powerful, vivid hues and layering, creating depth and texture. “This uninhibited, free approach in my painting lends a sense of randomness and spontaneity to each piece.” One of Kamiesha’s early works, Eden, represents a new beginning and was recently chosen as a regional semi-finalist piece for the “Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series”. Kamiesha graduated from the Parsons School of Design in 1999, earning a BBA degree in Fashion Marketing. She was born in Westmoreland, Jamaica, and currently lives and works in New York City with her husband and two children.
