Mita Brahma, Code Creation, 2012, Oil on canvas, 30" x 30".
Mita Brahma has a deep interest in nature at all levels of scale. Transient elementary particles fade in and form out of vacuum and pure energy. Cells reproduce through helical genomic structures with irregular geometric gene mappings. Leaves, flowers, trees enrich the earth in bewildering variety. Rivers, seas and clouds move, merge and tile earth-goddess Gaia in fractal outlines, where chaos meets subtle mathematical ordering. Stellar bodies move in complex paths as they form, grow, collide and decay in spectacular bursts spanning enormous distances and time.
Somewhere between these extremes, human beings build their artifacts and live their lives through birth, procreation and death. Nature at all these levels finds expression in Mita’s work. Her works show the joyfulness, and complexity of being in this cycle of continuous change.
Mita generally uses bright warm colors, and bold strokes. There is a flow visible in her work, depicting this energy or “Shakti” in humans or objects – including seemingly inanimate objects like rocks and gaseous vapors. For more visit: www.mitabrahma.com
