Binary (Vogelsang) (2019)
The circle appears through the artist's oeuvre and here is used to create symmetry and tension - through the use of form and colour.
The painting is made using melted wax to which pigment is added, each layer is applied and fixed - creating a luminous effect that adds to this geometric abstract work
Framed and ready to hang with a split baton.
Sudesh Prasad began his career in New York in 1986 in the East Village scene and has since lived and worked in various cities. After a pause in regular work between 2003-2018, he resumed work in the studio in 2019 and now works full time in the studio, focusing on the collaborative nature of the artist and the viewer.
Abstraction in his work is a process arrived at by constant refinement and reduction of ideas - using forms, restricted colour palettes and subtle tensions. The viewer is challenged to reveal, for themselves, any meaning - which should be inherent to the work, and not derived from the artist's intent. In this sense the artist is a conduit to realising larger truths.
Prasad’s works and installations have been shown in New York City, Vienna, Rome, Venice (1995 Biennale - Aperto95), Chicago and Cambridge and his work is present in numerous private as well as public collections.
He has lived and worked in New York City, Vienna, Rome and now splits his time between Cambridge UK and Puglia Italy.
