Ella Prakash explains the meaning behind heresies: “When you start painting you always will have a base idea of what your finished work should be, but more importantly allow yourself to prepare as manyas alterations of your base idea. Simply because once your mind has decided to steer your 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 of anatomy, chiaroscuro, and storytelling. Ella Prakash’ paintings are distinctive for their bold brush strokes and vibrant colors.
They record on both micro- and macroscopic dimensions in her exploration with anew 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 fascinatingly
Calculated, 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 their inescapable explosiveness. No doubt, that her expression and passion for painting inspire viewers to see, feel, and enjoy in their unique ways.
So, what is it that makes this work unique and inimitable? By using a crystalline style, it makes the work simultaneously an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia.
Ella Prakash creates our own past from fragments of reality in a process that combines the willful aspects of remembering and forgetting with the coincidental and unconscious. On a high level, she aims to illustrate this process that forms our inner landscape. Thus, a figure in motion, a lady moving out other shadows, can become a window into an alternate world, much like lived reality becomes its alternate in remembered experience. Are you ready to get out of your shadow?
In a hybrid language where East meets west, ancient and modern culture come filtered
through the sublime patterns of the mirrored motifs, Ella Prakash is painting her dazzling abstractions. Ella Prakash has exhibited in various exhibitions in Bahrain and worldwide.
