Summer is an artist with an original genre. When asked, Who is your favorite artist?, her reply is, The Supreme Being. This is her inspiration. She is a spiritual seeker and her artwork is her experiences with The Supreme Reality. She has named her new genre, Supreme Reality Art.

 The themes of Summer’s art are transcendental, with titles like -- The Cosmic Drama, The Archetype of Creation, The Supreme Alchemy, The Portal to The Beyond, Within The Divine Heart, The Innermost Landscape, Search for the Soul, The Divine Fire, The Supreme Feminine, Tying the Knot with The Supreme, and Humility of the Saints. The energy, colors, forms, and composition of her art compellingly draw the viewer to relate with a level of Reality, deeper and truer than the intellect. Seekers have been expressing the Joy of experiencing this Reality using different mediums; silence, singing, music, dancing, painting, speaking, and writing. Summer is naturally gifted to express through art.

Summer has exhibited her artwork in several galleries and international exhibitions since 2011. A New York art organization Creatives Rising, annually featuring top artists in the world, selected Summer in 2013 in the top 50 artists from diverse art genres and displayed her work on their video billboard and in their art gallery in Long Island City, NY. On July 24, 2014 three of Summer’s works were also chosen to be presented on two of Times Square’s largest video billboards in NYC. Light, Space and Time presented Summer with the Special Category Recognition twice in 2013 for their gallery presentations of, All Women Art Competition and Abstracts. In 2014, the prestigious Silvermine Arts Center in New Canaan, CT chose Summer as one of 47 finalists out of 500 in their juried art exhibition, AoNE. In 2014 Kilmat Art, New York, NY chose one of Summer’s paintings to be showcased in their exhibition, Ocular Diversity. Most recently, Coohaus Art, New York, NY selected Summer as one of eight artists in their exhibition, I am Talking to You.

Currently art experts are categorizing her works under Abstract Expressionism and Abstract Impressionism. Summer does not agree with this. She feels her art is objective, as real as the concrete realities of the phenomenal world, and without any distortion or exaggeration by the mind. She says her art represents experienceable facts of a deeper Universal Reality, which is the Source of everything that exists, and which science and mysticism have continued to explore into. She further adds that the need to accept and know this Reality is increasingly being felt in the world today, and life without it can have no real meaning. She is working to have her unique art recognized as transcendent, real, and representational under a new genre she has named Supreme Reality Art.

 Summer was born and grew up in India within a spiritual family. Her father is a Mystic and her Guide. She began relating with The Supreme Being as a little child. This spiritual environment inspired her to live for the True Purpose of life and seek The Supreme Reality. During early childhood drawing, sketching, and painting came naturally to her. She continued to self learn art and went on to complete her Master’s in Philosophy. She came to the USA in 2009 and began studying art formally at the National Academy Museum & School, New York City. Summer decided to live here as she saw it as the best place to evolve her art and explain it to the world. Recently she was granted permanent residence in the United States on the  basis of an artist of extraordinary ability.

Art experts have reviewed her artwork and corroborated her style as original. Summer feels indebted to The Supreme Being for this ability to express The Supreme Reality through art. She says that her art is unique not because art critics feel it, but since it will exalt art to take its true purpose in life, and give the art world real canons to evaluate artwork and teach art skills. Any gifted creativity she feels comes with a responsibility, and should, in addition to evolving the Self, be used to inspire and guide others toward the True Purpose of life.

Summer curated a solo art exhibition in the Schaffner Art Gallery Pound Ridge, NY from October 17, 2015 to November 28, 2015 to present and explain her new genre to more in the art world.

If the inner state of the artist is impure and unreal the creative process of Art cannot arise. Art is not wild strokes of a mind in turmoil. There always will be a difference between music and noise. Both are sound but; how can we call noise contemporary music?
