All add up to heaped blocks of suburban flats that are a recurrent subject to Prabha.

Artwork description: 241    There's a story behind each window of abstract blocks, many of them structures Prabha would expand upon in other frames.

Artist Statement

Thereís a central theme underlining my work: India, or more specifically Rajasthan, in colours. Cities, streets, people, desert depictions fading rapidly, everything I love and miss. Emotional tension finds an outlet in the process of creation. People and historical events live inside me as shapes and colours. Colour is central to my painting. Life is the epitome of the universe. Through painting I try to stay close to those things I like but canít own. Things which often hurt us but we insist on desiring and loving in a unique way. The mysterious repetition of nothingness that torments us all.

--Prabha Shah...
