Avani Patel seeks to interpret the content of music and express it through visual images, to create an environment of joy and passion, which conveys a feeling of dance and festivity. Born in India, Patel immigrated to Pennsylvania with her family at 11 years old. She holds a BA from University of Pennsylvania and an MFA from the Tyler School of Arts at Temple University. Patel's paintings are a rhythmic dialogue with music that create a language of abstraction as a means of expressing musical harmony in visual form. Indian performance and various musical styles inspire a system of expression using harmonious elements, and abstract figures, which form patterns on Avani's canvases.
