Artist Ella Prakash

 

In reviewing her artistic concepts, Ella Prakash explains the meaning behind her series: When you start painting you always will have a base idea of what yourfinished work should be, but more importantly allow yourself to prepare as manyas alterations of your base idea. Simply because once your mind has decided toyour thoughts, you start to unravel emotions and strokes that you never thought you could express”. In regards to her colorful compositions she mentions:” My spirit is mirrored in my work. I believe that every work of art must carry a message.”With her current abstract series, Ella Prakash challenges herself to unlearn the pattern of control she seeks in representation; thus, reinventing the language ofanatomy, chiaroscuro, and story telling. Ella Prakash's paintings are distinctivefor their bold brush strokes and vibrant colors. They record on both micro- and macroscopic dimensions in her exploration with a new language that frees her and welcomes viewers' contemplation. Ella Prakash’s signature is clearly legible in these works. In a very loose form, they show the visual codes that she has developed in her painting oeuvre over the past years.The works are immediate, expressive and at the same time fascinatinglycalculated, creating unique dreamscapes, which reflect the artist’s personal dynamism.The end result is a direct and spontaneous gesture on canvas that, in turn, is based on insight gained in previous work and which gives these paintings theirinescapable explosiveness. No doubt, that her expression and passion for painting inspire viewers to see, feel, and enjoy in their unique ways.
