Jodhpur-born, city-based Dr Snehalatha Prasad has had an innate sense of perceiving the beauty of milieu and expression in the form of drawing. She uses contemporary colours and their amalgamation to create artifacts. One can see that she gives equal importance to subject and texture and that can be distinguished in her paintings. Her recent work ‘64-Feet Fusion Painting in Abstract Realism’ is about the greatness of Indian art history.
In a conversation with The Hans India, the artist shares about her works.
Recalling the beginning of her career she relates, “I did my BA Fine Arts from Rajasthan University in 2002. I started my career with graphic paintings. Later, I started making sculptures. I am inspired by the beauty of Mother Nature. I wanted to show its greatness to people with expressions and I did 50 sculptures.”
As an artist she wants to reflect creativity with sensitivity in her work. “It comes through keen observation, both consciously and sub-consciously. Through my paintings I like to share my creative perception of surroundings and depict the subconscious beauty of culture, nature and society. Romance and beauty have been central elements in my paintings. I try to present what I perceive of the matter of romance and beauty on the platform of purity,” she says.
Speaking about her recent work, she shares, “Usually I want to do big canvas every time. I did this 64 feet ‘Abstract Realism’ painting in 15 days. It was about the greatness of Indian art. I did it by adding our artists’ style of work and I mentioned a brief about them.” Recently she made a sculpture titled ‘Me and My Father’, which talk about father and children relationship. “The inner connectivity in nature moves the artist in me. I always talk to nature. I want to show the value of the nature. In future I would like to become a garden sculptor,” she concludes.
