Armageddon and Hope is an emerald ocean

Samarra Prahlad writes: ‘My subject matter is the natural world, which I like to represent in an abstract and intuitive way, using palette knives. I love vibrant acrylic colours, especially blues and reds, which I feel gives an added emotional dimension to the scenes I am trying to capture. I often travel within New South Wales with my parents. A lot of my work is inspired by the natural beauty of the places I get to see. Armageddon and Hope is an emerald ocean were made in response to natural disasters in Australia in 2022: wildfires and destructive floods. These paintings are a documentation of those trying times. Before Covid, I was part of Art Together, a popular artist collective. I will be going to university soon, and I plan to keep my art up as it is an integral part of who I am and how I express myself.’
