"SHE”, the life force, the moving fearless female energy, subconsciously and unknowingly, has always been a predominant part of my art depicting genesis, whether it is in abstract forms, figurative forms or in the form of verse”.
“In ‘SHE! The Restless Streak’ Meena Chopra reveals her self to be a true original who combines words and images with grace and dexterity. She is that rare being who can transcend reality in her works to uncover layers of mystical experience through her search for cosmic consciousness, hidden truths, and subtle meaning”. Her words and images together are a gift”. *
