Jayshree Vakil

Austin, Texas

Jayshree Vakil uses oil, watercolor, pastel and ink to create stunning semi-abstracts.

Carefully attentive to the play of forms, Jayshree draws from immediate pleasures underlying everyday visual experience. Rhythms of line, rhymes of color and spatial relationships, unexpected vitality in “inanimate” objects, all make each work fresh, dynamic, and emotionally resonant. Experiences during her various travels find their way to her sketchbook, from whence they’re turned into paintings.

Jayshree believes art should liberate color and lines from being purely descriptive to becoming free and expressive – suggesting emotion rather than a simple documentation of what the eye sees. She lets the imaginative process conceive abstraction with energy, color, and feeling.
