IN DEPTH: RECENT WORKS BY M PRAVAT
Anant Art Gallery, 2007 (APRIL)
Catalogue Essay: Ina Puri
The living rooms and boudoirs ostentatious and with pretensions of grandness are empty of life. The frames on the walls are framed around blank nothingness- as if in testimony to modern living where consumerists becomes all- important and commodification a way of life. As a citizen of the fast-paced city, the artists seems to lament the slow death of Nature. Birds have flown away and plants/trees are in the process of perishing. Nature has lost its relevance, and its place, consumerism rules. M.Pravat grapples with this sense of loss in his metro-sexual urban existence.
