Prabhavathi Meppayil Biography

Prabhavathi Meppayil's (b. 1965, Bangalore, India) art practice draws on traditional craft and values the truth of materials and tools as well as simple forms, colours and shapes. Lines are a leitmotiv in Meppayil's work and corresponding with Minimalist principles, she expresses the necessity of a work that comes back to the pureness and essence of the material: copper is often used in her work for example. Meppayil's pieces combine artisan practice and modernist concerns using recurring features such as walls and floors on which she repeats lines and intermissions.
