FIRST SOLO ART EXHIBITION
BRUKNA MANOR, LATVIA
March 10 - April 21, 2020
Mohini is a serious amateur painter, inheriting an ongoing growing skill and a creative talent from her prolific artist mother, Renée Chatlani. Virtually self-taught, painting for Mohini is a profound form of meditation, a way of stilling the mind, focussing it on the ever-growing deep discovery of what is within her in each moment. A painting, which starts off as something, often, through the pauses within the sittings, emerges as something else: a revelation of sometimes, something clear, other times, coded spiritual and emotional messages, accompanied by an organic, spontaneous flow.
Her developing style is one of an eclectic nature, encompassing figurative abstract, portraiture and pure abstract. She uses both brush, palette knife and fingers and paints primarily in oils. She is influenced and inspired greatly by the impressionist and post-impressionist movement, as well as being open to discovering the old masters, as well as the new. She is thrilled to have found an outstanding, international artist and teacher in Angelika Privalikhina, whose style and passion she is very aligned with and with whom she is now studying: plein-air painting in Tuscany, Normandy France, and eventually St. Petersburg, Russia.
Mohini is a published author, a recording artist and singer, record producer, a true Yoga Instructor and Teacher Trainer as well as a teacher of Tai Chi for Health and Qi Gong, for seniors and all bodies. What gives Mohini’s life purpose, meaning and value is to be able to help others realise their full potential, to encourage personal health and wellbeing and inspire the development of innate creativity. Mohini loves music, painting, gardening, meditation, yoga and tai chi silence, helping others, nature, travel, animals and elders. Brukna is Mohini’s first solo exhibition. She is thrilled and delighted to be invited.
Grateful thanks to Father Andrejs Mediņš, the Brukna Community and Dace Jurjāne.
