Biography

Rukshana HoodaRuksRukshana Hooda Semi Abstract Artist.
born : 9th July 1958.
Rukshana Hooda had been just a home maker for 25 years. When her health started to fail her, she went back to doing what she used to enjoy as a young girl, Painting. She was a Semi Abstract Artist with a Foundation degree from Sir J.J. School of Art and was armed with a Diploma in Textile Design from Sophia College, Mumbai. She revisited her core and realised that she had not lost her ability to create Semi Abstract Paintings which are pertaining to designating a style of painting or sculpture in which the subject remains recognizable although the forms are highly stylized in a manner derived from abstract art.
According to her The biggest challenge, which She finally overcame, was to find her own space and get back to creativity whilst being a full time homemaker. Also health was on a decline but was able to overcome all of it and get back to art and art shows, to see every day as a challenge, to heal, to be able to do more and better art, to win awards, to be motivational which she feels is a tremendous BLESSING.
Words by Rukshana ~ I am a semi abstract visual artist, following my instincts I’ve been self-creating my own genre in charcoals, texture and acrylic on canvas. I believe that Art is the communication of knowledge and experiences.
I have used charcoal in my construct as this is where we all come from and I believe in the adage, ashes to ashes, dust to dust! We will all eventually return to where we have emerged. I am also inspired with the five elements of nature, Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space.
I try and incorporate it in all my Art, and it forms the basis of my communication. In my mind Colors are like the rewards of life that one receives from the universe and so they are always bright and alive for me. Colors also create a sense of positive energy in contrast to the stark charcoal that I use to form the blueprint of my thoughts, from darkness to light.
I enact many roles on a daily basis, being an artist is just one of them; I also aspire to being a better Mother, Sister, Daughter, Friend and Wife. As an artist I am what I paint, and what I paint is me. I respect and embrace all feedback to my work, sometimes even I am surprised by the way people interpret things and that keeps me going. For me… It’s the journey of evolution and imagination that I’ve been blessed to have had the opportunity to experience and I’ve enjoyed it the most. My Awards are a sign of being appreciated as an Artist, people do recognize me as a Professional Painter and is blessed to have this opportunity to express herself through her Paintings. According to her a total cloud nine feeling is to be recognized and to be alive through her art. She says visiting homes of Families, Friends, Collectors and seeing her works displayed there and being appreciated inspires her to create more and paint better. We all aspire for something, if we pursue that with all our devotion and give it time; I believe that the universe will conspire and help us create our own legacy. When that happens and the circle is complete, it’s our duty to thank the Universe for its gift.
I paint because I believe in Rudyard Kipling's quote, "An ounce of demonstration, is worth a ton of theory."

Your dreams are your paints, the world is your canvas.. Believing, is the brush that converts your dreams into a masterpiece of reality and that Masterpiece is your Life....!!!!
