Moving Paintings by Om Prakash
Om Prakash continues his high adventure of line, space and colour – of an intensely abstract metaphysical order. The enormous degree of discipline and imagination characteristic of everyone of his works is deceptively of a geometric nature but in truth, their cadence and melody is beyond geometry. The multiple intersection, the poised spaces and built-in harmony and contrast of colour results in a series of fantastic kaleidoscopic visions. The tension, the mathematical accuracy and the resonance of colour is so like music. This exhibition consists of best works this gifted and serious painter has so far offered us. Om Prakash’s concept is uncompromisingly precise but without the slightest suggestion of severity.
