Abstraction, Fine and Subtle
The rectilinear and curvilinear abstraction, practically exhausted of its possibilities by Mondrian and Delaunay, is explored again by Om Prakash and he has come up with new, subtle and exquisite solutions. His success lies in the great thought he gives to compositional construction, fine sense of colour, elegance and tidiness of execution. As in the world of Brancusi his finished work manages to belong simultaneously to two worlds : that distilled from reality and evoking it, very remotely, yet with rich poetic suggestion, and the world of pure conceptualisation with the ideal beauty of a geometrical theorem.
