welcome to my studio
Adriana G. Prat
I confront painting like meditation; only the physicality of the painting materials and sentiment experienced within an instant in time-space command my art making process. In this meditative state of mind, I produce typically warm-colored and/or highly textural non-representational paintings.
My art is characteristically informed by the rumination on an emotion or subject in which I frequently dwell: gratitude, identity and loss are archetypal protagonists in my art. Writing plays a recurrent and vital role in my process. Poems, reflections, or words serve as mantras during my highly gestural painting process, a textured foundation on which introspective journeys can be further explored and made manifest on the canvas surface, although the text is often illegible or absent in the finished artwork.
I work mainly with oil-based paint, but experiment with acrylics to create more fluid textures. I have recently started experimenting with encaustic painting to continue exploring my textural voice in this uniquely spontaneous and versatile process.
