Artist Statement of Ella Prakash

Ella Prakesh challenges herself to unlearn the pattern of control she seeks in representation; thus, reinventing the language of anatomy, chiaroscuro, and storytelling. Her paintings are distinctive for their bold brush strokes, she expresses her work through palette knife using vibrant colors, 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.
