ZIMMERMAN ART GALLERY

 

Current Exhibition

  • December 2020 / January 2021 - Prakash Patel - Light Forms

    To end the year and welcome the next, ZIMMERMAN’s summer exhibition is Light Forms by Prakash Patel.

     

    For Prakash Patel, each new painting is an adventure of exploration, experimentation and discovery.

    “I've always been fascinated by nature and its complexity. You can look up in to space, and it goes on and on. The same thing happens when you look through a microscope - there’s actually no point where it ends, it goes back into infinity again.”

    Working across several canvases at the same time, Patel paints in a spontaneous manner, enabling each work to evolve intuitively. 

    “I would say I’m not religious, but there’s something about painting that has a kind of spiritual aspect.”

    “The act of painting becomes almost like praying, or a devotion to God. And then something happens, after a while, where you start to feel like the planets are lining up and everything starts to make sense.”

    “I’m always searching for that moment: when everything makes sense, and is connected, from the microscopic world to the cosmos.”

    Exhibition runs until 31 January 2021
