Turning to abstract painting after a meditation experience, Pratima Aravabhoomi explores humanness and what it might all mean. Her works are vibrant explorations of humanness. She uses mixed media such as fabric, paper, acrylic, ink, charcoal, pastels to create visual amalgamations in her paintings like fragments of a journal, capturing individual expression against the backdrop of the universal.
“My paintings are what I call humanscapes — portraits of humanness. our oddities, conflicts, vibrant nature of our life set against the landscape of the universal.” - Pratima Aravabhoomi
